Callaghan Creek Race

July 2015

As the days start to get longer and the weather starts warming up, we start thiking about kayaking once again. 2015 will mark the 6th annual Callaghan Creek Race, continuing a tradition of racing down one of BC's most famous creeks, celebrating this special whitewater river. Unfortunately the 2014/2015 winter is turning out to have one of the lowest snowpacks in several decades, so it's likely that for the third year in a row the race will be stuck with low water. Despite this, the race will go ahead and it will be good, as always.

While we always wait until the end of snow accumulation to decide on a date, there's little chance the snowpack will recover this season. It's most likely the race will again be in early July, but we may decide to push it even earlier to ensure we have good (or even runnable) flow. If you have an opinion on holding the race on short notice in May or June when we are gauranteed a few weekends of high(er) water, please let us know!
