The Vail Recreation District partners with the Eagle River Water & Sanitation District, Town of Vail and Alpine Quest Sports to host the annual Vail Whitewater Race Series. The races will be divided between three categories, including kayak (under 9'6"), stand-up paddleboard (SUP) (under 11') and 2-person raft* (10'6" or smaller) teams with different course challenges every week. The course challenge for each event will be determined the day of the race based on river flows.

Race day bib pickup and registration begins at 4:00 pm at the Vail Whitewater Park at International Bridge, there is a mandatory safety talk & course instructions at 5:20pm at the Covered Bridge Start Area, and all races begin at 5:30 pm.
