Callaghan Creek Race 2013!!!

Fellow Paddlers,

Greg Daspher on Race day. Callaghan Creek

The undisputed highlight of the Whistler, BC kayaking season is coming near with the annual Callaghan Creek Race. It is set for Saturday, July 20th. It will be a team race with groups of two trying to descent this classic creek as quickly and safely as possible. It is truly one of the most amazing race courses anywhere, on one of the world’s most awesome rivers. Levels should be a bit lower this year, making the race accessible to more people. So if you are a solid class 4+ boater and want a challenge, come try yourself BC style. Or hike in to check out the awesome waterfall section and appreciate the show from the comforts of the dry shore. A trail will be marked.

This year’s race is especially important as the Callaghan is facing an acute risk of hydro development, which would all but destroy the  recreational value of one of the most highly used creeks in the country. So come to challenge yourself, and even more importantly, come to show your support for this amazing river and help safe this gem from being another casualty to hydro development.

There will be lots going on all weekend, with group paddles down the Callaghan and other creeks and the post race party at “the Cabin”.

See you all there!
