Cascade in Idaho, is gearing up to host the third Stand Up Paddleboard Payette River Games and the event that will run at Whitewater Park is offering the worlds richest prize purse with a whopping $50 000 up for grabs. The P.R.G will be going head between the 19th and 21st of June 2015 and we are being promised this will be the biggest and most exciting one yet.
All athletes taking part will not only receive free camping, but when they are competing will get free organic meals and the opportunity to soak between events in a riverside hot tub! The winner of the men and womens race will receive a first prize of $10000 and this will be awarded in cash at the prize ceremony.
The weekend has plenty to do for everyone, whether you are a competing athlete or just there for a fun few days. Not only will there be the two main events the SUP-er G and the SUP XROSS, there will also be river surfing, beach volleyball and the highly entertaining beach flags (think musical chairs, on sand, without chairs but flags instead!) More gentile options include yoga and dog fetch, while the lumberjack event will give you the chance to try log rolling or the axe toss.
Not only are you promised an action packed weekend, you will also be pleased to know that all of the entry payments will go to Kelly’s Whitewater Park and will help to ensure the venue remains open and free to all.
The official teaser video is attached at the bottom of the page and will give you an idea of the sort of fun you will find at the 2015 Payette River Games, and to find out more information and to register to participate, check out the P.R.G website here.
