Upriver Workout – MO & KS Rivers

May 13 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM


Kansas City area paddlers: Who’s up for a workout?!! We’ll meet near downtown and first point our bows upriver on the Missouri River and do a “treadmill” for a few minutes to get warmed up, then head back onto the Kansas (Kaw) River to paddle 5 miles upstream and stop on a sandbar for a quick break, then head back to our starting point. The goal is a workout, so plan to go at a steady pace with no stops. If you’re extra speedy, you could do up-and-backs on the Kaw to meet up again with those of us going relatively slower.

After, we may head to a nearby downtown Kansas City patio for conversation over food and drinks if schedules allow.

Required: River paddling experience AND 14 foot or longer kayaks or fast performance-type paddleboards or canoes because of the distance and speed. This is not a good match for new paddlers or shorter/slower boats or boards so check other events on our Paddle KC Paddling Club calendar for many other fun activities. We’ll cover safety measures before launch.

See details and RSVP at the event on the Paddle KC Paddling Club calendar.
