Welcome to the 4th annual Toby Creek Race. We are stoked you are considering attending this event. Below is an outline of the schedule of events, accommodation options and event information. This event is setup to cater to ALL levels of whitewater paddler and the Intermediate race is super chill, loads of safety and really fun. The Advanced and Elite races are run on a continuous Class IV section of whitewater.
Note: We would like ALL race participants, coaches AND volunteers to register for this event.
You must be an AWA member to race (you can join the AWA prior to the race).
Intermediate Division: This race is run on a Class 2/3 section of river with a long runout and plenty of safety. There are 5 slalom gates on the course. Competitors can train on the course in the morning. Run 1 is a qualification lap and then Run 2 is the final. Your time on run 2 is your final time and will determine your final rank.

There will be a men’s and women’s division for the intermediate race, and great prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each category.
