The Green River Narrows

The Green River Narrows Race happens once a year in November and is probably one of the most exciting kayak races to watch in the southeast. Boaters plunge down the steep bolder filled class V river and many are more than proud to make it through without a swim. Gorilla, probably the most famous rapid, is just captivating to watch as people barrel down it. The Narrows are just south of Asheville in Saluda, NC. If you plan of attending the race dress warm and make sure you get there early it is a steep 2 mile hike in, and there is sure to be a lot of people there.
