Do your best Louis and Clark impression with today’s deal of registration for the Mississippi River Challenge on July 28th and 29th, a $60 value, for just $30.
With a goal to bring awareness to river health, this year’s event will take paddlers on a new route with the first day spent on the Minnesota River and the second on the Mississippi River. The first day will challenge intrepid kayakers, canoers and paddleboarders to 17 downstream miles from Bloomington Ferry in the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge to Fort Snelling. After staying overnight at the Fort and enjoying tunes from the Roe Family Singers, paddlers will continue 22 miles on the Mississippi River from Fort Snelling to Grey Cloud Island. Not sure you can handle it? The race also offers two shorter options of 17 miles in one day or 11 miles in half a day. Music will be provided along the way from Dan Newton with the Bellow Brothers, Mary DuShane, of the Moonlight Duo and the Ditch Lilies.
Each paddler is required to raise $250, which will directly support the work of "Friends of the Mississippi River" to protect and conserve land along the river, its water quality and its value as a recreational, ecological, cultural and historical asset for the community. They make it so easy for your friends to pledge directly online. Fall short? Just pony up the balance yourself and you’ll still be getting a great deal. Bring your own canoe, kayak or paddleboard or rent one from the organization for an additional fee, but either way, the event organizers will haul all your stuff and provide shuttles, all meals and snacks. Get to know your local rivers and see if you can give Poseidon a run for his money on the Mississippi River Challenge.
