3rd Annual Cuyahoga Falls Kayak Race
1:00 PM13:00

3rd Annual Cuyahoga Falls Kayak Race

The Race event kicks off at 1 pm on Saturday, April 28th. 

Expert whitewater kayak competitors and spectators will be gathering in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio for a time trial race through the most difficult section of rapids on the Cuyahoga River. Expert kayakers, get ready to experience a race like no other. A half-mile stretch of rapids, with just over 60 feet of elevation drop, completely surrounded by an urban setting. At the end of the race you'll find yourself at the bottom of a 100-foot canyon. At the top of the canyon walls, on river left, is State Route 8, which has an estimated 90,000 travelers per day. On the opposing side, river right, is downtown Cuyahoga Falls. Just seconds away from this Class V run are all your urban amenities including multiple restaurants and bars, a brewery, hotel, apartments, and cafe. The race is unique because it's short enough that shuttling or portaging for multiple laps is easy, and it's surrounded by everything you could possibly need.
