On June 2nd, 2012, racers will meet under the HWY 87 bridge where it crosses the Rio Llano, near the usual put-in.

All paddlers are expected to be there and ready to roll at 10AM. This year the race is going to be a Jubilee, a slightly different version, and adapted for the currents and current transition of the event. It is the 10 year anniversary of the event and Jerialice Arsenault the director and owner of the race, is encouraging people to join in for a relaxing group paddle down the river. If you have been waiting to attend this water sport, this is the year!

The Llano wends it’s way for about 12 miles from the bridge to the take-out at Riversounds. There are a variety of challenges and sheer, fun beauty as you make your way downstream. With recent rains, the river is running at a good flow and the waters are clear and clean. This is a family event and all racers must have a life jacket on board. It is going to be a warm day so sunscreen and plenty of water are advised.

Once the course is completed, participants may camp on the finish line, or return to their vehicles, come get their gear and return home, tired but satisfied with a job well done. 10% of proceeds will be donated to The Aim at Melanoma for the Cure group. That is the cancer that took the life of Miss Arsenault’s sister in 2007.
