Every great city needs a Great River Race. London has one, and now so does the Twin Cities! Gather your team of 9 colleagues or friends and race in a 24' Voyageur Canoe on the Mississippi River.
Interested in volunteering? We can use your help in a wide variety of roles: from timekeeping, serving rolls and hauling boats, to cheering and greeting teams as they arrive, your help makes this event happen. We might even need an extra hand to race in our canoes!
The Great River Race benefits the Canoemobile program. Corporate teams, friends, families and nonprofit organizations join the race at Hidden Falls Regional Park. Teams are responsible for recruiting 6 to 9 paddlers for their boat, and raising money for the cause. Wilderness Inquiry provides experienced stern paddlers, Voyageur canoes, paddles, PFD's, and all the rest.
There are also many volunteer opportunities. Please register and we will get in touch with you. Thank you for your support!
For more information about how to sponsor a boat, corporate sponsorships, or volunteer opportunities, contact Willy Tully at email@example.com or call 612-676-9430.
Gather at Hidden Falls Regional Park by 8:30AM.
Enjoy coffee and light breakfast with your team and plot your strategy. The Race starts at 10AM. Paddle and enjoy this beautiful stretch of the Mississippi River. The fastest canoes will approach the finish line by noon, with others coming in by 1PM. Enjoy lunch and a short awards ceremony.
If you are registering to volunteer, you will be contacted for a time slot that works for you. We need volunteers from 7AM-2PM. Thank you!
