Levisa Fork River Streak

The Explore Kentucky Initiative is proud to join Paintsville Tourism and Prestonburg Tourism for the inaugural Levisa Fork River Streak presented by the tourism offices of both cities. This event has been rescheduled from the original May date to October 14th. 
Race distance will be 8 and 16 miles for a diverse fielding of solo and tandem paddle craft; SUP, Kayak, high performance kayaks, and canoes. Paddlers will streak along the flowing class 1 waters of the Levisa Fork, a tributary of the Big Sandy River, while being surrounded by the foothills of Kentucky’s Appalachian Mountains, experience breathtaking scenery, and camaraderie of paddlers from all around the country. Trek along the waterway where the last riverboat sunk in the mighty Levisa on Wisman Shoals or marvel at the engineering masterpiece of West Prestonsburg Bridge and old bridge cross ties along the way. Post race we will gather and dine on the wonderful cuisine of Lizzie B's Cafe Bakery, a Hawaiian themed eatery , fellowship with games and music, and of course presentation of race awards.
