The first permitted Tallulah Race is happening this year, on November 13!

35 racers will see who can run the Gorge the fastest. Race starts above Last Step and ends at Power House. There will be 60 seconds between racers. Fastest time wins. There is a $15 fee per qualified participant to cover the insurance costs. A special thanks to Georgia Power Company and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources for allowing the race to happen this year.

The permit to have the race requires for the first year, that only experienced Class IV/V whitewater kayak and C1 racers are allowed to participant. The permit requirements also force us to exclude canoes and rafts this year. Not our choice, but we will be fighting to include open boaters and raft teams on next year’s permit.

Qualification for the race will be based on past experience at the Green Race, the Lord of the Fork race, and Tallulah Gorge experience. There will be 35 spots open for boaters to apply for. If you have zero history at the Green Race and the Lord of the Fork race, but feel like you are qualified to participate in Tallulah Race 2016. Please fill out the registration below and let us know what other races you have participated in. Look for the Other Verifiable Race Experience text box where you can let us know what other race experience you may have.

Everyone that applies for Tallulah Race 2016 will get a registration confirmation emailed to them, acknowledging their entry and providing the two waivers that will be required to be signed. This acknowledgement is not a guarantee of being selected as a qualified participant. Registration closes on November 7th. Once the qualified racers and alternates are selected, they will receive another email with the race order. We will also announce the racers, race order, and selected alternates on our Facebook page.

We have a plan to minimize the amount of time taken from other boaters on this release day. To accomplish this, all racers and safety team will go down the steps starting at 8:30am. Normally boaters are not allowed to start down the stairs until the water levels have been declared stabilized, by Georgia Power personnel. Which normally happens between 9:45-10:30am. When you think about the amount of time it takes to hike down all the steps, there may only be a 15-20 minute window where boaters may be held up from launching. Private boaters will be allowed to start down the stairs as normal, when the water stabilizes.

If you would like to help with safety and have a ringside seat for the race, please shoot us an email to tallulahrace@gmail.com with “safety team” in the subject line.

If you have any questions about the race or your registration, please email tallulahrace@gmail.com with “Question” in the subject line. We will do our best to answer any questions you may have.

News from Rapid Media Staff:

The 2016 Adidas Sickline Extreme Kayak World Championship runs from October 6 to 8 in Austria. This will be the ninth time the championship takes place on the Wellerbrücke river section in the Ötztal Valley.

The Wellerbrücke rapids are class V whitewater with many high consequence sections. This competition differs from many other whitewater events because it brings together paddlers from different disciplines—including slalom kayakers, extreme kayakers and river expedition kayakers. The head-to-head format in qualifying rounds makes the competition extremely close.

In the 2015 event Norwegian Mariann Saether won the women’s title with a time of 1:03:49, while Spain’s Gerd Serrasolses won the men’s with a time of 55.34.
