    Event Description:
    Friends of the Verde River presents the 7th Annual Verde River Runoff. The runoff will be held on Saturday, March 16th, 2019 in Camp Verde. This 5 and 10-mile kayak, canoe and stand-up boarder race is a popular event that draws novice and seasoned paddlers alike. Participants select from multiple entry categories to challenge every type of boater with trained safety personnel stationed at hazard locations. The race and fun float is a competitive event as well as a family-friendly celebration of nature and boating during prime season for river running in the Verde Valley. The course will wind its way through mostly Forest Service lands set against the picturesque backdrop of the red rocks. The 10-mile race starts at White Bridge and the 5-mile at the River Access at Clear Creek. Both races end at Beasley Flats. The river has a nice current with Class I-II rapids making this an adventure for all. Join us for the after-party and awards ceremony held in conjunction with the Camp Verde Spring Heritage Pecan & Wine Festival. Besides being a lot of fun, proceeds go to conservation efforts for the threatened Verde River and outdoor recreation in the Verde Valley.
