Get your kayak, your canoe, your raft, your homemade watercraft made out of old milk jugs — whatever you can put in the water and paddle — and race down the Rio Grande river for your share of…well, nothing. Nothing, that is, except the glory of winning and the fun of competition!

Fun for participants and spectators alike, it’s time once again for the Great Race Down the Rio Grande. Register before noon Wednesday (May 27) for just $10 per person — that’s over 50% off the late registration fee of $25. Just fill out the registration form and dash with your cash (or check, debit card, credit card, or Q Card) to any of the registration locations prior to noon Wednesday. In addition to getting you into the race, your registration fee scores you an official event t-shirt. Suh-weet!

You can register during pool hours at these city pools:

  • Highland
  • West Mesa
  • Valley
  • Los Altos
  • Sandia

See the map on the official website for locations.

Info for spectators: the Great Race Down the Rio Grande will be held Saturday, May 30 (2009). Kayaks and canoes will launch at 8:00am from the Alameda Bridge; rafts and our faves, the homemade crafts, will launch at 10:00am from Tingley Beach. Finish line for all racers is the South Diversion Channel at Valley High Rd SW. See more info on this nifty, interactive map.
