On June 21st, costumed competitors furiously paddled the Elk River in a fun and thrilling Raft Race.

The race is not only fun, but doubles as a charity fundraiser with entry fees going to the Elk River Alliance’s ‘Elk River Discovery Camp’, raising $2780 this year.

Always wanted to work on the trails? Then come on out! We provide the gloves and the tools and will teach you how. For your 2 hour effort they will always have yummy cookies and drinks!

Each week will be a different location but they will always meet at the Aquatic Centre to fill out a waiver and head to the trail head either by car or by bike.
