Seems like it works in Internet Explorer but gets blocked by Firefox browser. It stems from an issue from last year that was fixed but some browser versions may still block the map pages on the James River Association page. Not to worry, though, we will be posting a Google Map of the course in the near future!
Glad you are interested in the race and hope you can join - will be a great experience!

The numbers need to be on there prior to the race they are not provided. Anyone planning on paddling at night should have running lights too. We want to make sure you are not only able to see, but be seen from front and back as well.
Will there be a high/low water level cutoff for the race?
Last year the river was about 9ft on the Scottsville gauge on the same weekend.
As far as I'm concerned, anything up to about 12ft, would just make it easier, but I'm sure there are liability concerns.
There will be and we will figure out the exact level within the next week or so. Last year was pretty unusual for it to be that high, usually around 5-6 ft. A little extra "push" would be great but don't want it too high for safety sake.
