Every spring, temperatures warm up and it’s that time again; to clean up your home and all that you love.

Conscious of the trash floating down river and collected at the shores as he paddles, Danes wants to make sure that the water that gave him his life’s passion are clean and usable for the next generation of young kayakers. 


Dane Jackson is teaming up with the University of Tennessee Knoxville Outdoor Program and USA Raft to take a group of kayak and outdoor enthusiasts on a two-day trip to clean up the Nolichucky River.

Jerry’s Baddle

Jerry’s Baddle is a dual sport race that began in 2006 to honor a good friend, Jerry Beckwith, who had been diagnosed with ALS. The race was born out of a desire to keep his spirit and passion alive by raising money to help fight the disease that took his life and to foster the community he loved.

The race consists of 4 miles of whitewater kayaking through the Green River Narrows followed by 26 miles of road cycling with 4000 ft of cumulative climbing.

2015 Lord of the Fork Race Results

Congrats to Dane, Geoff, and Isaac for the podium finishes!

We had a record Turnout for the race this year. Ninety six racers by my count.

This was the 21st edition of the Russell Fork Race. It was renamed “The Lord of the Fork” race in honor of Jon Lord, who died at Tower in 2004. If you could decipher the script at the bottom of the bibs, it pays tribute to him.

I would like to mention that Chris Hipgrave, who for years held the course record for the race, which he set in a Wavehopper, was part of the very first timed event in 1995. He has been a regular, and is still at the top of the field, competing against some who weren’t even born then. Well done Chris!

The 30 second interval start seemed to go over well. I know there were a number of passes, which we hope to minimize. It was sure exciting to watch at the finish.

Thanks for your patience with the delayed start. We had a number of very late entries, which we’ll need to find a better way to deal with next year.

Safety is always a worry when organizing an event such as this. Thanks to those who were willing to set safety along the river. JB Seay and BJ Phillips hiked in with safety gear. Others paddled in.

Thanks to all who volunteered: Jesse Sammons, Gerald Delong and Daman Patterson for starting everyone off. Sadly Willy Witt had to miss out on his duties there this year. Jay Ditty, who was willing to start early after sprinting to the start after dealing with the late entries, and then race first to help with timing. And Maggie Snowel for registration, and bib management. My least favorite part of an event like this is hounding folks for their bibs. Thanks to all who made our life easier by handing them back.

And Thanks to all who donated to cover costs. Many gave extra, which will cover most of our annual expense, which is primarily insurance. And to those who donated prizes and awards.

Hope to see you next year.

Eric
