The Explore Kentucky Initiative's Bluegrass River Run is back again in its second year. This will be the first event of the 2018 Kentucky Waterman Series and our first down river race/float of the year; making it a perfect way to start the season. Paddlers will blast off from Kentucky State Parks's Fort Boonesborough State Park, the start of beautiful 100 mile + palisades (canyon) section of the Kentucky River that flows through the heart of the Bluegrass region. Starting from the beach below historic Fort Boonesborough founded by the great frontiersman Daniel Boone, the race will follow the river through the impressive limestone geology of the Kentucky Palisades and the ambiance of early spring with beautiful views of river banks in full bloom. Along the way at each turn in the river race will see many varieties of dogwoods, as well as maples, weeping cherry trees, redbuds and other flowering species. The 6 mile race and float will end at Proud Mary BBQ in Fayette County and 19 mile near the historic Valley View Ferry which has been in operation since 1780.

Post race we will gather on the sandy beach at Proud Mary's for some great local barbecue, fellowship with games and music, and of course presentation of race awards.
