  • Leashes: Only releasable leashes allowed. No leashes for SUP Cross.

SUP Dual Slalom:

In what has quickly become the most spectator friendly SUP competition on the river, SUP Dual Slalom is head to head racing through gates in the Salida Whitewater Park. Two athletes, each in their own “lane” will race through a series of gates that will test their river running skills.  Each racer will do one run in each lane and combined times will determine the winners.


10-mile Downriver:

For the Downriver race SUP paddlers will tackle downriver action between the Stone Bridge put-in and downtown Salida.

*Colorado SUP Championship athletes do not need to register in individual events
