 Can you describe the different races and courses?

Our course is on the Cumberland River in the heart of downtown Nashville. Start and finish are the same spot: In front of Nissan Stadium, where the NFLs’ Tennessee Titans play. We have a two-mile course (one loop) and a six-mile (three loops.)

What kind of paddling settings and conditions will racers face?

This is a flatwater race, with loops up and down river. You may have current and wind.

What makes your event great? What will paddlers love about coming to your event?

Nashville is one of the hottest cities in the country and we’re at the center of the action. You’ll paddle downtown along the skyline, have an awards ceremony with a view and then walk across the bridge for an after party.
