"Stand Up For The River" Race and Spectator Event

August 24, 2013 - 4:00pm to 7:00pm

Saturday morning, August 24, is your chance to join the North Saskatchewan Riverkeeper and "Stand Up for the River".

Come check out the Easy Rider Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) race and tour from Hawrelak/Laurier Park bridge or other viewing points along the the North SK River down to Rafter's Landing. Other good spots include the LRT bridge and the trail west of Groat Bridge in MacKinnon Ravine Park.

There are few things that capture our connection to our North Saskatchewan River like a regatta of Stand Up Paddleboarders cruising down the water in unison. Come check out the recreational and aesthetic value of our river and paddleboarding.

The paddleboarders can be viewed from Hawrelak/Laurier Bridge around 10AM.  We will have an NSRK information display inLaurier Park just up from the boat launch from 10:30AM-1PM. We can answer questions about SUPing on the river and other NSR questions. The Riverkeeper is now a Stand Up Paddleboarder and you can check out the new touring board.

If you are an experienced river paddleboarder and are interested in entering the 6th Annual Easy Rider SUP Cup, click here for the race and touring details.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, August 24!
