Paddlers of all ages and skill levels will take to the water for our 10th Annual Back to the Chattahoochee River Race and Festival on Saturday, June 9. The race course begins at Garrard Landing Park on Holcomb Bridge Road and ends at Riverside Park in Roswell, the site of the FREE family-friendly festival, with music and awards presentation.

Organized and presented by UCR in partnership with the National Park Service, Fulton County, and the city of Roswell. Race begins at 9 a.m. and includes open and recreational categories, various age divisions, solo and tandem canoe divisions, as well as kayak and sea kayak divisions. Paddlers wanting a competitive race will traverse the ten-mile course, while recreational paddlers will take the 8-mile course. Both include exciting Class I-II rapids and conclude at Riverside Park. Timing officials will be provided by Georgia Canoeing Association.

The festival at Riverside Park, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., welcomes racers and others to enjoy live music, Riverside Park’s “spray ground,” face painting, and other family-friendly activities, as well as vendors and an array of environmental exhibits. LEARN MORE HERE.
