Bluegrass River Run Races 2021

Bluegrass River Run Races 2021

Period: May 22 - May 22, 2021
Location: Richmond, United States

This summer grab a kayak, stand up paddle board, or canoe and join #ExploreKentucky & friends for the fifth annual Bluegrass River Run (BRR), a celebration of the Kentucky River - the commonwealth’s namesake waterway. The event launches from the beach at Fort Boonesborough State Park which is located just south of Lexington and allows participants three different ways to experience the incredible beauty of the 60+ ft cliffs of the river's palisades section and the camaraderie of fellow paddlers. The mainstay of the BRR is the scenic 6 mile Float Trip. Then for the folks who want more of a fitness challenge there is the 19 mile Boonesborough to Valley View Challenge and 6 mile Clay Ferry’s Run. Both race distances are apart of the 2021 Waterman Series, a regional paddlesports racing series. If you can’t BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat), don’t fret we will have plenty of canoes, kayaks, and SUPs for rent.

The event takes place on the 22nd of May, in Richmond. For more details, please follow this link.
