What separates this race from any other race in the area is that the race course is not set. All you receive before the race is a start point, turn around point, and the finish line. You chose the fastest line! Competing in both races will not just test your paddling speed, but also your endurance.

Each category must have 3 or more participants or will be combined with a like category.

The Seneca Showdown is a family friendly event with a wide view of the race course, picnic benches, and food for everyone! This year we will have demos of Verus, Liquid Logic, Waka, and Pyranha Kayaks! Immersion Research will have gear to check out and lunch is provided by the Elks Club. This event is also the season kick-off of the Team River Runner family Sunday paddle. There is no cost to register, please consider Donating to TRR national.
