Don't Miss the Canoe, Kayak, & SUP Races in Fredericksburg, VA June 6!

Along with the local, volunteer organizing committee, the ACA will host the 35th annual Great Rappahannock Whitewater Canoe Race (GRWCR) in Fredericksburg, VA on Saturday, June 6, 2015.

This classic Fredericksburg event takes place every year on the first Saturday in June. Races are open to participants of all ages and include both whitewater and flatwater canoeing, kayaking, SUP, and even canoe poling. In addition, there are races for youth and Scouts. 

Online registration for the GRWCR is available now, and participants can also register on-site starting at 7:45am on race day at Old Mill Park. Proceeds from this annual race support Friends of the Rappahannock, the ACA Collegiate Racing Program, the Fredericksburg Fire Department’s River Rescue Team, and the Fredericksburg Chapter of Team River Runner.

This year, the GRWCR is part of the inaugural Rock the River FXBG event. This all-day, stewardship-focused festival features environmental educational programs from local conservation organizations, on-water paddling instruction, river clean-ups, a running race, ultimate Frisbee, and a riverfront beer and blues festival.
