Join Vail Recreation District for a NEW whitewater event on Saturday, June 5.

This whitewater event is open to kayakers and R2 raft teams (raft team must provide their own boat, up to 12′). Kayak racers start at 4 p.m. and raft teams start at 5 p.m. The race format will be a single-run time trial.

“We have been talking about doing a whitewater race in Minturn for a couple of years,” said Beth Pappas, VRD Race Director. “Based on the participation in our other whitewater races this year, and the interest from the Eagle Valley Land Trust and the Eagle River Watershed Council in partnering for an event, this seemed like the perfect time to debut this race! For racers, this is a great warm up for the GoPro Mountain Games and spectators will have a blast watching the action from the deck of the Minturn Saloon.”

The Minturn Downriver Dash is presented in partnership with the Eagle Valley Land Trust and Eagle River Watershed Council. Thank you to our sponsors for this event: Town of Minturn, Alpine Quest Sports, New Belgium Brewing/Mountain Time Lager, Alpine Kayak, Minturn County Club and Minturn Saloon.
