The Battle Royale SUP Sprint takes place on the Lower Pond of our man-made whitewater river, challenging participants with elements of flatwater and slight currents. This beginner-friendly race puts paddlers’ skills and endurance to the test as all participants compete on the same type of paddle board (included with registration). Each participant races around buoys in the Lower Pond, navigating the moving water run-out of the whitewater channels. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the USNWC’s 4th of July Festival on the River Jam Stage as you compete in this tournament style standup paddleboard event. (Please note, participants will not be allowed to bring their personal stand up paddleboards)
