The Big South Fork River Dash presented by Beinthewater is back again in it's second year. This event will be last event of the inaugural 2017 Kentucky Waterman Series, serve as our awards ceremony site for the overall Kentucky Waterman Series, and is one of the last paddlesports race of 2017 in the upper Southeast; making it a perfect way to end the season. Paddlers will have a chance to experience the beauty of the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area, one of our country’s great frontiers through a flatwater river dash down the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River while being surrounded by scenic gorges, sandstone bluffs, and lush forestland. New for this year is the addition of a 3.5 & 14 mile course. This is a spectacular paddle sports event you do not want to miss! Also EKI plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from this event to hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. We want to do our part to help our fellow citizens in need!
Entry fees are non-transferable. Race credit is available for future Kentucky Waterman Series Events.
