Race the River 2024 – Mission Reach

April 21 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Race the River Mission Reach

**WEATHER UPDATE**

We are watching the weather forecast closely as we approach the event and are optimistic about conditions. Current forecasts show a high likelihood of rain on Saturday, leading into early Sunday morning, but ending before the race is scheduled to begin. As of now, we are proceeding with Race the River: Mission Reach as planned, rain or shine, with the possibility of a delayed start if conditions are deemed unsafe. Participant safety is our top priority, and we will not proceed with starting the race until flow in the river is at an acceptable level. Delay announcements will be made in person at the start line and Check-in time for racers will remain the same, as scheduled at 7AM-8AM. If the possibility of a delayed race start does not fit with your travel plans or you are uncomfortable with potential conditions of the river, please let us know and we will remove you from the racer list and issue a refund.

Check out the Race the River information page for more details.
