This event can only happen if we work together. Oh-Be-Joyful is located at the edge of our wilderness boundry. So it is a pack it in pack it out venue. Vehicle traffic up the oh-be-joyful road will be discouraged. We will have a truck there to shuttle boats, but all competitors need to walk the coarse for pre race inspection and to see the points of safety. WATER UPDATE the creek will be running high for the race. the 1st run starts at 3pm the 2nd will be at 5pm. last night the water was consideredto be high by local standards. The result of the water level is a possible under 4 min race time...... fast. the nature of the Creek or lines havn't really changed you don't touch rock on the slides. Please understand this will be an aggressive venue for a race.
