Gore Canyon Race 2010

Only 3 weeks until the best race and festival of the season!

Gore Race is Saturday August 28th and everything is line for a great day out. If you've ever wanted to get on Gore Canyon, this is the day to do it.

However to make sure this can all happen we do need the help of volunteers. This is for safety on the river, timing, watching the railroad tracks etc. Volunteer help in the past is what has allowed us to continue with this great event and is greatly appreciated.

If you can help out in any capacity please contact Lisa Reeder 970-390-4481 or [email protected]. Volunteers will receive a t shirt and also get to hang out and have some fun at Gore!

Hope to hear from you soon and see everyone out there!

Gore Race Information

River Access Closures:
Please be aware that the BLM will have a couple of closures this weekend to support the Gore Canyon Race. First, the access road to the put-in for Gore Canyon will be closed to public use starting Saturday morning, August 28th. You will be able to access the put-in by using a shuttle bus provided by the event organizer. You can catch the shuttle buses at Pumphouse from 9 am to noon. The closure will be in effect until 3PM on Saturday.

The second closure will be at the Launch #3 area at Pumphouse. This is the launch that is the furthest downstream. Starting on Friday, August 27th, Launch #3 will be closed to public use. The Launch #3 area will be used for parking and staging for the event. The closure will be in effect until noon on Sunday, August 23rd. Only race participants, spectators, and event personnel will be allowed into the area during the closure. Launch #1 and #2 will remain open to the public and commercial boaters, but please be aware that these areas will be very crowded.

If you are a spectator or participant of the Gore Race, you need to park in the Launch #3 area. We want to keep Launch #1 and #2 open for boaters and other users that are not connected with the race. Please do not park in the main parking lot between Launch #1 and #2. Areas where you will be allowed to park will be marked. The event organizer will have people directing traffic and answering questions when you drive into Pumphouse. Please keep your vehicles in the designated parking areas. Vehicles that block access will be towed. All vehicles will be required to have a valid day use pass ($3 per vehicle per day).

Camping for participants and spectators will also be downstream from the Launch #3 area. Please do not camp in the campground adjacent to the main parking lot. We want to keep those sites available to visitors not connected to the race. Spectators and participants that camp overnight will be using the two group site areas and the new campground area downstream from Launch #3. Walk-in dispersed camping will be allowed in the Launch #3 area, away from the parking areas. Please pay at least $1 per person (above the $3 vehicle fee) if you intend to camp. Camping money should be given to race organizer or specified in fee envelope. All camping money will help race organizer pay for $195 assigned site fee.

Campfires are allowed at the developed campsites where metal fire rings are provided. All other fires are prohibited.

Dispersed camping will be available at the usual sites along Trough Road. Remember to use sustainable camping practices: use established sites; keep your vehicle on existing roads; use a landfill-approved bag system to pack out human waste and toilet paper; and pack out all your trash.

Dogs: All dogs must be kept on a leash within the recreation site. Please clean up after your pet.

LASTLY, remember to stay river left if scouting is necessary. We MUST STAY OFF THE RAILROAD!

BLM thanks you in advance for your cooperation with these restrictions and your support to make this years race a success.

hey Joe

If you are wearing the huckin ducky cape Pyrite and Tunnel are best scouted from the left as well. It is easy to comply and respect the terms BLM and Timberline have set up. Thanks for their work, and it does not matter what day you are in Gore, staying off the tracks is easy.

no- no safety river right- the (safety) boaters will have already flipped in Gore Falls by the time you get there-
actually yes- plenty of people left and right- loads of safety-
sorry I won't be able to make it this year- quirk in my schedule
