Paddlers wanted! Join us Saturday, August 21 at 9:00 am at Junction’s city park for a truly unique paddling challenge. You’ll have 12 hours to paddle upstream about 15 miles to the First Crossing, then back down to the South Llano Bridge. Only those racers who complete the course in the alloted time will have a chance at a $1,000 cash drawing, as well many other great prizes! Registration is $25 per person and benefits the Junction Lions Club charities.
Friday evening, August 20 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm we will be at the city park pavilion for check-in, as well as a viewing of “The World’s Toughest Boat Race… to Document”, a film about the Texas Water Safari, taking place in San Marcos just two weeks after the Up & Back. Junction Texas Tourism is a proud sponsor of the Water Safari, and we hope to see some familiar faces on the South Llano River as we have in years past.
More details on registration to come.
