Aug 15, 2013
by Jay Schultz  

If you're into White Water gnar, we'd bet the house you've heard of the Narrow's of the Green River. Pro Kayakers travel from all over this green earth just to compete each November in the Green River Narrow's Race. Although, separate from that legendary race, the region and local outdoor folk have added one event that caters to any and all things outdoors. What's your pleasure?..... Mountain SUP Championship? Upper Green Race (WWK)?, Cove Climb 6K?, Big Hungry 10K or Half Marathon? Oskar Blues Enduro? or showcase your fitness and ability with the ultimate combo of Kayaking, Mountain Biking and Trail Running with the Sierra Nevada Silverback.

Since the majority of us that lurk Pinkbike are here for MTB, the information on the Oskar Blues Enduro is below. No matter what you are into, it's bound to be a weekend of epic proportions!

 Sounds like a fun weekend. Biking, kayaking, camping, and Oscar Blues beer. Their Old Chub scotch ale (8% A.B.V) is my favorite.

 I heard about this race a month or so ago, and drove up there to explore some of the trails. They are pretty awesome, however there were lots of downed trees on the course a few weeks ago from record amounts of rainfall and storms. Unless a lot of work has been done in the past couple weeks, the race organizer needs to round up some volunteers post haste. I'd volunteer a days labor, but that course is in need of a an organized maintenance day prior to holding a race.
