Race 1 – River Dash

Sunday 21st March 2021

River Rush has been a consistent series favourite over the past few years because it is such a good rush, this year the tides don’t allow for the RUSH factor so its more of a DASH!

Are you ready to come and experience it again or perhaps take the plunge (not literally) for the first time to find out what you have been missing out on.

The long course starts in the Ross River. Once out of the River enjoy the wind-assisted ride runners as you race to Pallarenda beach. Adrenalin plus in this event. The short course starts and finishes at Pallarenda Beach and is a modifiable lap course that will be set at around 6km. This is great for the beginner paddler taking on all conditions in a safe course design.

Long Course:

Course Description:

River Dash takes competitors on an approximately 14-16 km scenic journey from the South Townsville boat ramp and out the Ross river mouth.From the River mouth the turn buoy will be placed to maximise the best possible downwind run to the finish line. This downwind run should see the watercraft moving fast as they ride the ocean swell and wind chop for the best adrenaline rush!
