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 Urban Wilderness Canoe Adventures (UWCA) program. Corporate teams, friends, families and nonprofit organizations can join the 7 mile race from Hidden Falls to Harriet Island. 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.
Sponsorship levels range from $2,500 to field a boat up to $15,000 for presenting sponsors. Click the “Sponsorship Information” link below for more details on sponsor levels and benefits.
There are also many volunteer opportunities. Please register and we will get in touch with you. Thank you for your support!
