NEW! Creeking Lite is a new program designed as a step up from Cheat Lite. Work on creeking skills on the Lower Yough and train to run class IV like the Lower Big Sandy. Click on the registration block below for details.

Equipment:

All participants must have a dry suit or similar thermal gear. It has been known to snow on the first Cheat River run! In addition, you will need to have layers for under their dry suit, booties, and hand protection.

For Cheat Youth, Calleva is able to provide a long boat, paddle, skirt, helmet, PFD.

For Cheat Training and Cheat Elite, you will need to have a long boat, something over 10 feet.

Contact [email protected] if interested in purchasing a boat. There are a lot of “old school” boats out there that are great as well! Potomac River Supply also has dry suits, layers, pogies, etc!
