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.
