Knoxville’s Three Rivers Regatta 2019

Knoxville’s Three Rivers Regatta 2019

Period: Jul 13 - Jul 13, 2019
Location: Knoxville, United States

A 24 Mile race on the Tennessee, French Broad and Holston Rivers. A 4.2 Mile race on the Tennessee River. And a Surfski Paddle Clinic. ALL REGISTERED RACERS ARE AUTOMATICALLY ENTERED TO WIN A STELLAR SURFSKI AND OTHER GREAT PRIZES.

Paddle Knoxville will host two races that will start and finish at Gov. Ned McWherter Park in Knoxville TN. Paddlers will travel on portions of the Tennessee, French Broad and Holston Rivers. All turn points for both races are islands. These are deep water races suitable for any style craft. Although conditions may vary, typically the current on this portion of the Tennessee River makes the course more lake-like, with current under 0.5 mph. Half of the course will wind through downtown Knoxville, past Neyland Stadium and the University of Tennessee. The upper section of the course is scenic and undeveloped sections of the three rivers. Channel width ranges from the open expanse of the Tennessee River to sheltered (and shaded) 120' wide blueways. There will be no commercial traffic on the river during the race.

The event takes place on the 13th of July. For more details, please follow this link.
