Anyone have info for a 2015 Gore Race? Been digging around and haven't seen or heard anything for this year. Nothing here or on Lakota's web site.

lakota is not doing the race this year. i hear tell a young lady named hattie johnson (she is an amazing lady/boater)is running it this year, and that she needs help putting it on. try calling downstream adventures rafting company for more details.

I feel like it is always cancelled when flows are running this high. My guess is it won't happen if we stay above 1500.

The race should happen at 3000cfs in mid-June, from put in to take out.

It's not even August yet. It could still come down before race time.

What we all probably concur with is that Bailey fest will likely be cancelled. No need for municipal water out of Roberts tunnel in the foreseeable future.

Gore is down to 1530, think your probly set unless it realy pours rain next month, or it's super dry down stream and farmers need masive water? Tributaries have been dropin like a rock in w.p./ fraser :( Great for the race though:)

The race is going down this year with a whole festival and lots of events. American Whitewater is working weekly with green mountain resevoir to secure 1200cfs for race day. Their first meeting was this week and it went really well. While of course there is no guarantee the resevoir engineers saw no reason it wouldn't be possible. Below is the link to the registration page. Like our Facebook page as well, Gore Fest to check out the full schedule of events.
