Testing the waters
This year's event proceeds went to Ohiopyle's volunteer fire and rescue squads, and American Whitewater's Access Program (See the Ohiopyle Falls Access Proposal Page for more info). Three years strong now, the Ohiopyle Falls Race & Freestyle has attracted well over 200 participants from all over the United States. With big names such as Jeff Snyder, and Clay Wright having shown up in the past, it's become quite an event for the spectators as well. The tiny town of Ohiopyle comes alive with vendors and a wide variety of food, as hundreds of on-lookers and paddlers hustle and bustle throughout the park.

Practice sessions for running the falls went on most of the day on Saturday. The official race took place on Sunday. We're hoping to scrape up some results here soon (you can always check here, too: http://www.emich.edu/paddle/AOPFindex.html), so check out the exciting pics in the meantime.


Special Thanks: To American Whitewater, Ohiopyle's volunteer fire and rescue squads, The Ohiopyle State Park Service, Riversport, Eastern Michigan University Paddling School, all of the event sponsors and volunteers for making this race possible.
