Vertical Challenge Update: “Let the registration begin!!!”

The best reason to quit your job this spring and raise donations for a truly worthy cause is now open for team registration. That’s right, at the following link,, you can now register your team for the Vertical Challenge. It is as simple as entering in:
  • Team Name
  • Team Members
  • State
  • Class (Open, Class IV, Class III, Weekend Warrior)
For those of you who have not heard about Vertical Challenge, it’s a simple competition, you and your paddling buddies paddle as many runs as you can endure from May 15 – June 15. At the end of the 30 days, the teams with the most vertical feet in each division are crowned champions. All funds raised go to First Descents a kayaking program for young adults with cancer. Open to all paddlers, from all states, of all skill levels. Click here for more details -

Prizes include Dagger boat, Kokatat drytops, WRSI helmets, Tech4O watches, KEEN footwear, Voz Sports shaders, Paddling Life schwag and Funnel videos. Special thanks to Alpenglow for picking up a big chunk of the event costs.

Easy +20,000 feet

Here is an easy way to rack up over 20,000 feet per person. All these runs are doable, and some could easily be looped 5 times in one day (Bear, Clear Creek Arkansas, Lower Clear Creek, Black Rock, Escalante, Left Hand). Bailey would be difficult to get 5 in on one day.

Run----------------------------------Feet-----# runs--------Total Feet
Bear Creek-------------------------670--------5----------------3350
Black Rock-------------------------620--------5----------------3100
Clear Creek Ark------------------585--------5----------------2925
Lower Clear Creek-------------485--------5----------------2425
Left Hand Creek------------------480--------5----------------2400
---------------------------------------------------------------------23,025 feet total
