Welcome to MidwestPaddleRacing.com !!!

Welcome to the site that is completely focused on Midwest paddling and racing. The sport and community have grown so much here in the Midwest, especially in the Mo/Kan region, 

Wow that's great!!  I can't believe something like this has never existed before!  I know, right!  Read on:

This site describes the
evolution of Midwest paddling and what it is.  There is a great race calendar in full calendar format and in a downloadable word document.

Local Midwestern suppliers like Epic Expert Ron Ladzinski have become excellent ambassadors to the sport, and there is a page dedicated to all their goods and services. If you are
new to the sport or a veteran looking for some new equipment, call Ron!

Wait, there's more?!  Yep

You will also find another page dedicated to protecting our rivers. It highlights great groups such as Missouri River Relief. Read more about what they do and how you can be a part of this.
In addition to the website, Midwest Paddle Racing also manages and directs the Epic Shootout, The Gritty, The Freedom Race, and The Kawlloween.  You'll find all the information you need about these races including how to register. Sign up a month early and save $10 of race registration.

We have pages linked to many relevant Midwest river links in states such as Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, and Arkansas.

There is also a page that has many resources on boat building and boat rigging (Yeah, I know you are drooling already!)

It can't get better than that, can it?
  Well, actually it does!

We have an entire page dedicated to preserving the best of the best from Rivermiles.com forum pages.  That's right, it's like the national archives of Midwest Paddle Racing.  There is so much great and valuable information that has been buried in the cyberpages of the forums from years ago, and it could have been lost for ages.  Now it is here at your fingertips.
