Come join American Whitewater at the 2019 Oh Be Joyful Creek Race in Crested Butte on June 22!

"The World famous Oh Be Joyful Steep Creek Race is back on this year! Saturday, June 22nd is the day to come out and show your stuff on one of the steepest kayak races out there! Registration is now open, so sign up to race or just come out and watch one of the greatest shows on Earth!" - Paul Raymond, OBJ Race Director, says it all.

Here are the details:

  • Race Day: Saturday, June 22nd 
  • Time: Check-in from 7-9, racer safety meeting at 930 and race start ~10 or later depending on water levels
  • Cost: $40 registration @ the_obj_race.eventbrite.com; cost includes racer registration and entrance to the after party with free food/beer

Racers will get the chance to take two laps on the creek with their best time used for ranking purposes. Each racer will receive a swag bag with a Theracane! In the event of extreme high water, the race start will be postponed to allow levels to drop. 

The afterparty this year will be at the Talk of the Town in Crested Butte with beer provided by SKA and Eddyline and food provided by the Brick Oven Pizzeria in CB. 

See ya'll there!
