Bear River Race

 the bear is back!

The Bear River Race is back for 2019. Presented by the Jackson Hole Kayak Club and Rendezvous River Sports. This is a class V race beginning at BooBoo Rapid and ending ~1.5 miles later at the takeout. All racers must be expert kayakers and have paddled this stretch of whitewater before.

A huge thanks to American Whitewater for securing these releases. If you aren’t, head over to their website.

Volunteers are needed for timing (do not need to kayak) and safety (must be expert paddler). All volunteers will receive an event t-shirt, post race BBQ, and $10 RRS Gift Card. Email Rainer if you are interested.

The Bear will be releasing on Friday-Sunday (4/26-4/28). A request of 1200 CFS has been made for race day, but flows of at least 900 CFS will be provided.
