news Watauga Race 2016 is Set for 3/19 at Hign Noon
FB event website:

The Race is set for Saturday, March 19, 2016 @ 12:00 PM!

Come up to the high country for the Watauga Race*.

Be at the put-in, with shuttle set at high noon. Flow must be above 250cfs in order for the race to happen.

Format will be the same as previous years– mass start free for all from the put-in to the pool below Stateline.

The start time is late enough for folks to get a practice lap in the AM (which is recommended if you aren’t familiar with the run), or if it rains more to get a quick lap on something else. Also, Try to bring as few cars up to the top as possible, as parking up there is limited.

Bring it...

Race Organizer: Dylan McKinney –

*The Watauga Race is not a race, it’s a group paddle with no one setting safety and maybe even no one keeping track of the time, so don’t race if you aren’t comfortable running the Watauga solo.
