2023 New River Canoe Race Results

Hello racers,

We know this is late, and we do apologize for that, but we have at last wrapped our arms around the race times, created the spreadsheets and gathered all the photos from everyone.

What can we say but a huge “Thank you!” to all of our racers, volunteers and sponsors. We could not have pulled this race off without you. All of you.

As this was our first year hosting, you can imagine how daunting an endeavor this was for us. We wanted to honor those who came before us, and at the same time try to make it our own, while not wanting to let any of you down. Without you, we may have had a race, but it wouldn’t have been this good!

We are humbled by the pride and passion this tradition brings to our community and feel you are all rock stars and winners in this race. We hope to be your hosts for a very long time.
