The course is only an hour away from Denver International Airport and only 2 to 3 hours away from many of Colorado's excellent whitewater rivers-including the site of the 1999 ACA Open Canoe Downriver Nationals, an event which will take place on the following weekend.
Come race at the foot of the Rockies--and afterwards take in the Downriver Nationals, or simply go off and explore Colorado's many whitewater rivers.
