Great River Adventure Roaring Bull Races

GREAT RIVER ADVENTURE - ROARING BULL RACES

2014 Roaring Bull Canoe, Kayak and SUP Race
Saturday June 7 - Manatango Creek to Millersburg. 

The 2014 edition of our race this year will be staged from the north side of the Manatango. Take Rt. 147 across the bridge and go towards the river on Bell Road. Use caution at the rail road crossing.

We are supplying the shuttle bus this year. Drivers (only) need to be down at MYO Park in Millersburg by 9:20. So show up early, register, drop your gear and boats, and hustle down for the shuttle back.

There are tons of classes for both competitive races and recreational paddlers.  Find the class that fits your boat best and have fun with the race.  PA F&B registration is not necessary.   PFDs are required by ACA and SRTA.

We’ll have event t-shirts for participants and volunteers. If you register early, post marked before May 31, I’ll save the correct size shirt for you. Pre-registering will also save you $5. Send in a waiver for each person and one registration form for each boat, $15 for each adult and $5 for each youth under 14. Late or race day registration is $20 per adult but still $5 per youth.

Awards this year are “First Place” caps for the winners of the competition classes and medals for 1, 2, & 3 in recreational classes. Immediately after the race enjoy an “All-American” picnic lunch and a door prizes drawing for all racers.
