Commonly referred to as the roughest, wildest, most challenging canoe race in America! The race takes place on Florida’s famous Waccasassa River and brings you through the heart of Florida’s back country. Sightings of deer, wild boar, alligators, and all types of snakes are a frequent occurrence for race contestants. The race covers 15 miles of twists and turns and the current rain fall can have a dramatic effect on the river, adding to the challenge. Race contestants will experience dragging their canoe through mud, over logs, dogging branches, not to mention the challenge of the occasional rapids. With all that in mind, Survivors still come back year after year for the ultimate test of endurance while enjoying good, old-fashioned country fun and fellowship.
