Clear Creek on the Rise River Festival

ATTENTION: RAFTERS, KAYAKERS FROM BEGINNERS TO PRO



ANNOUNCING



THE CLEAR CREEK ON THE RISE RIVER FESTIVAL



JUNE 9/10/11 2011





The Clear Creek Metropolitan Recreation District has teamed up with GOALS (Get Outside and Learn Something), a local nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for youth to learn about themselves and the world around them through multi-day wilderness river trips, to create the Clear Creek on the Rise River Festival.



This 3 day festival will showcase Clear Creek as one of the premiere whitewater recreation areas in the state of Colorado. Over the past decade, its’ varied whitewater and proximity to major population centers have increased the creeks popularity to now be ranked the 2nd most commercially rafted river in the entire state-behind only the Arkansas River.



The Clear Creek on the Rise River Festival will take advantage of this popularity, and from June 9th to June 11th will offer a variety of competitive events and instructional courses on different sections of the creek, encouraging participation by river enthusiasts of all ability levels.



On June 9th the featured events will be a Freestyle Kayak Rodeo in both Pro and Novice categories, for both female and male contestants. The venue for this event will be the new Lawson Whitewater Park.



June 10th offers both an 8 mile Downriver Kayak Race, as well as an 8 mile for


Raft Guide and Pro Teams Raft Race.



June 11th promises to offer fun for spectators and participants alike. Comprised of teams of people who are friends, co-workers, families, other sports team members, clubs or someone you just met, the Citizens Challenge Raft Race will surely extend a new experience to all involved.



Throughout the 3 day event, a festive atmosphere will thrive in Idaho Springs’ largest park, conveniently situated on the banks of the creek. From here, spectators can watch the races, and take advantage of the various vendors and companies represented.



Finally the event will close with a tour stop from one of the most acclaimed International Paddling Film Festivals available.

With all the snow the CC basin has seen this year, this could be a pretty rowdy event!

Clear Creek is really stepping out

This is an awesome event for Clear Creek County...what an amazing community. I just moved up here last summer from Colorado Springs...LOVE IT and events like this are going to make it even better to live here. Clear Creek County has amazing boating, biking, Mt Boarding, hiking, skiing, 14rs...I have to be honest...it's one of the best kept secrets in Colorado. I can't wait for this event. My 10 year old boy and I just started taking lessons to learn how to kayak in the pool at the Rec Center in Idaho Springs. We are excited to see some amazing tallent from the various levels of competitors and to watch the down-river raft races. This is going to be a great weekend...can't wait to watch all the raft companies compete in the citizens challenge. Maybe I can even get on an team
