This spring grab a kayak, paddle board, or canoe and join The Explore Kentucky Initiative for the third annual Bluegrass River Run (BRR), one of the largest paddlesports events in Kentucky. We’ll launch from Fort Boonesborough State Park paddling along pool 9 of the Kentucky River, which is located just south of Lexington. The journey immerses you in the incredible beauty of the 60+ ft cliffs of the palisades and enjoy floating refreshments stops, as well as musical artists playing from docks along the river at several points along the course. As we approach the finish line at Clay’s Ferry, you’ll be greeted with music from our headliner, as well as the scrumptious food from Proud Mary BBQ. There will also be an an outdoor recreational festival with tons of activities for all ages including partners like Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and Bluegrass Wildwater Association. For the folks who want more of a fitness challenge – take on the 19 Mile Lock 9 to Lock 10 Challenge or the 6 mile Clay Ferry’s Run. If you can’t BYOB, don’t fret we will have plenty of canoes, kayaks, and SUPs for rent!
