2013 Western PA Region Creek Race Series

The creek race series for 2013 will feature 4 Creek Races on 4 of the following 5 streams :

Wonder Falls Lower Big Sandy : WV

1. Lower Big Sandy, Bruceton Mills WV
2. Meadow Run, Ohiopyle PA
3. Paint Creek, Johnstown PA
4. Indian Creek, Camp Carmel PA
5. Wills Creek, Fairhope PA

The format will be “stakeout” based in that I will post a date for the races 2 in February and 2 in march, and the week of the race I will hold the event at the location with the best water levels for that week depending on current conditions and forecast. Depending on which creek we are racing the format will either be a time trial (Paint Creek, Meadow) or a Mass Start (LBS, Indian, Wills) which will also be timed. This format will allow us to stick to a schedule and have flexibility due to water levels.

All participants will be entered into drawings for great prizes from the World Kayak sponsors. We are also looking for other sponsors for this series so if you know anyone please share the event info.

Dates as follows :

Saturday February 16, 2013
Saturday February 23, 2013
Saturday March 16, 2013
Saturday March 23, 2013

Should inclement weather or low water make us miss any of the above dates the make up dates will be in April. Worst case scenario would be if we are forced to hold more than 1 event on the same creek.

Classes will be set the day of the races based upon the # of participants. We do reserve the right to group classes based upon turnout.

Paddlers will receive points for each race participated in with the cumulative points to determine the overall CHAMPION.

Please register on-line at the OFFICIAL REGISTRATION (CLICK AND SCROLL TO FIND WESTERN PA REGION ). Races are not yet posted for registration.I will make another post with link when the races are officially entered into the system, but all races will be listed at the link already provided.

Any questions please don’t hesitate to call or email. I am also in need of volunteers to help with race day stuff like check-in/registration, timing, safety, photo/video. If you aren’t into racing and would like to help hit me up.

Keep on the lookout for more info…
