(Note from the race organizer)



Dear Paddlers:


We’d like to invite you to the Paddling Life Creek Race in Steamboat Springs, Colo., on Monday June 3 at 5 pm on Fish Creek as the wrap-up of the weekend-long Yampa River Festival. The 2- 3-minute course is Class IV/easy V, with a cash purse of $1,800 (Men: $600, $300, $200; W: $400, $200, $100)


The event is positioned to enable you to visit and compete between the Lyons Games and GoPro Vail Games, and post-race party at Carl’s Tavern downtown. Camping is available at Steamboat Campground (970-879-0273) along the Yampa. Registration is onsite at the put-in (registration closes at 4:30 pm) at a cost of $15 per racer. (Please park along Steamboat Blvd., NOT the road leading upstream to the put-in). More info can be found here: http://www.paddlinglife.net/article.php?id=257


There’s no freestyle event this year, just the creek race – which means there’s no splitting of the purse. So spread the word, come on up to race against some of the country’s best, and we hope to see you


For more info, call (970) 870-1376 or email [email protected].


For lodging, camping and lodging options abound (Visit www.steamboatsummer.com, 877-286-2628, for information), or visit our host Rabbit Ears Motel, where you can put on the Yampa right outside your door, at (800) 828-7702, 879-1150). And there’s plenty of other great paddling around, from the C-hole right downtown to the Elk River, Willow Creek and Gore and Cross Mountain canyons nearby.

Looks like an awesome event. Why the different payouts?

hojo, I'm not sure exactly why... I would say because there are usually so many less women competing. It should be a fun weekend up here, come join us!
