The start location is now Wonch Park in Okemos, MI, following the Red Cedar River into the Grand River and out through Grand Haven, finishing at Grand Haven State Park. The race is approximately 160 miles, with estimations of the fastest times being anywhere from 36-40 hours and 57 hours being the cut-off time. This Race varies each year from Late March to Early April, taking advantage of the Grand Rivers high water from snow runoff. This race is held regardless off weather conditions, which therefore carries many inherent dangers in addition to the dangers of any paddle sport. These dangers include but are not limited to: Severe weather, night paddling, dams, extreme cold, and capsizing.
