We are excited about our second annual Middle Loup River Challenge in Thedford, Nebraska. Follow the event updates on our Facebook Page, Sandhills Journey Scenic Byway.
The race will be a little shorter this year at 28 miles. Come out and enjoy the day and meet some fellow paddlers.
Last year we had a paddle boarder complete the entire race, which was 33 miles. That gave us the idea that maybe we should offer up a paddle board division for this year’s race. We are excited to be able to have a men’s and women’s divisions for paddle boards this year. If you have friends that may be interested, let them know about our event.
The Middle Loup River is a nice, scenic float. There is a lot of wildlife all along the path of our race. You may even see river otters along the way. There are stretches of tighter turns and the stretches with good straights. The last mile and a half does widen out some so you may need to chase the channel. Different vessels will have different advantages all the way through.
The event is September 12th, 2020. Click here for registration information.
