PLEASE: can you post some details of this course and race.

1. Length of run for the race and class of water. Any class III or IV?

2. Will there be boat race categories?

3. Is this run approriate for downriver boats (plastic and glass)? Perhaps too bony?

4. What sort of numbers of folks have showed up for this race in recent past years?

Thanks!

1 - Not very long, should only take about 3 minutes or so. Class IV creek.

2 - I think it's just "run what ya brung" all in one category.

3 - Plastic would be the call, it's bony.

4 - Not sure, maybe 20 or so.

I've not raced it, or even run it this season, but it's a fun run and even though the race is over at Steamboat Blvd bridge, you'll want to run the rest if you've never done it.

- It is probably less than a half mile - 2 minutes? - same course as Stohlquist Go Pro event a few years back.

- Class 4+/5- depending on who you ask and what kind of day they are having. Over 3' and it's business.

- No boat categories - to keep it fair under 9' creek or play - maybe a couple of classes depending on how many people show up.

- Stohlquist is kicking down some gear for the person who has the "worst day". Use a glass boat - it might increase your chances of winning that. It can be bony.

- It has been cold but with a little warm weather Fish should come back up.

- See you there - KT
