14TH Annual Paddle-or-Battle on the Appomattox River

September 24 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

| $35

Welcoming paddlers of ALL levels to the 14th PADDLE-or-BATTLE on the scenic Appomattox River! This section of river is flatwater and tidal, winding through beautiful areas with lots of wildlife. Paddlers have a choice of a 10-Mile Race with NEW RACING CATEGORIES, a 10-Mile Leisure Paddle, or a 2-Mile Shorty. Your registration includes shuttle, morning snacks, lunch, t-shirt, and handcrafted awards! Event proceeds support Friends of the Lower Appomattox River (FOLAR) conservation and stewardship programs.
Kayak rentals are available. Newcomers might consider the 2-mile shorty course option because this year the race is going UPSTREAM with the incoming tide. Register today! The registration fee will increase $10 for walk-up or day-of registrations.
Properly worn PFD’s are required. All participants are required to complete liability waiver.
AFTERPARTY AT TRAPEZIUM BREWING CO! (423 3rd St, Petersburg, VA 23803) With release of a new brew – UPSTREAM Kolsch – to support FOLAR.
