Every Tuesday from May 14th-June 18th from 5-7pm on Gore Creek, the Vail Kayak Race Series will hold different races for competitors and spectators to enjoy. Races feature kayakers, stand up paddle boarders, and rafters.
The "Down River" races will have racers paddling as fast as possible from the Covered Bridge to the International Bridge. Racers will need to navigate turning around two buoys before crossing the finish line.
The "Ring Your Bell" Race has competitors racing from the Covered Bridge to International Bridge, but they cannot complete the race unless all bells on buoys are rung.
The Best Trick event will showcase the Vail Whitewater Park at its best with big tricks and surfing from kayaks, SUPs and rafts. The judges will decide but the spectators get to enjoy the action from the side.
