Gore Race-August 23rd & 24th

The BLM would like to send condolences out to Beth's friends and family.


The Gore Race is scheduled to start with the SUP race on Saturday at 3pm at Pumphouse, Launch 3. Sunday is the main race through Gore Canyon. There are some closures everyone needs to be aware of.

*Launch 3 area, group campsites, and individual sites south of Launch 3 at Pumphouse will be closed to the general public starting at 1 pm on Friday, August 22rd and will closed until 1 pm on Monday, August 25th. These areas are reserved for Gore Race participants and spectators.

*Confluence Road (Gore Canyon put-in) will be closed just past the little temporary parking/take-out for the Blue River from 9 am to 1 pm on Sunday, August 24th.

Everyone must pay $5 per vehicle per day (Friday-Monday). Campsites are $10 per night Friday and Sunday night. All campers on Saturday night only need to pay $1 per person (this money contributes to the assigned site fee paid by Lakota Guides). Please write "Gore Race" on all fee envelopes. There is an additional fee station near Launch 3 before you enter the lower camping area.

The river will be VERY busy from Pumphouse down to Two Bridges and beyond (we are expecting many private boaters to move downriver this weekend to avoid these events).

All boat launches will be more crowed that usual and everyone needs to work together to make it work. We will have all our staff out but it is a big river and we won't be able to be everywhere when needed. We appreciate you all helping us to make it a great weekend for everyone!

Please contact me with questions or concerns.

Flows for Gore Races

Hey Buzz'rds
As many of you know, AW participates in weekly calls with water providers and Reclamation to assess late season streamflows in the Colorado River, and the use of the Historic User Pool in Green Mountain or a declared surplus across the upper system. From this mornings calls, we can report that the river will be running at 1100-1200cfs for the remainder of this week and for the event.
We might see small changes in flows due to adjustments for rainfall, but managers are confident that flows will be within our optimal range.

If you are interested in more info, feel free to drop me a line.

Happy Paddling.

Join American Whitewater!

Post Race Announcement

I want to thank everyone for coming out. We have decided to give all the race prize money to American Whitewater in honor of Beth. Since we obviously had some race finish and timing issues this is what we decided to do instead. looks like we will be able to come up with some race times to at least see how you stacked up. One of the photographers was at Kirshbaum and each photo was time stamped. It will be accurate but will be slightly above the normal finish. We will at least know that the participants were still paddling at this point. This is all I can offer and next year we will make sure the finish is defined for racers and our timer. Sorry for any confusion or frustration, but like I said in the pre-race meeting, it's not all about the race but the experience of the weekend and paddling hard together.
