Tour de la Rivičre Rouge - Paddle Race 10
Event Date: September 30th, 2017
This paddle is an adventurers’ race. It runs 275 miles from Bossier City to Port Barre inside of 129 hours, down the Red and Atchafalaya rivers to Krotz Springs with a motor portage to Bayou Courtableau for the final leg. Unlike Tour du Teche 135, there are no check points, no mandatory stops, and racers have the option to portage around or lock through the five dams on the Red River. Teams must have a coureur de bois and must employ a SPOT Tracker. This race begins at 9 a.m. the Saturday before the start of Tour du Teche 135 and ends with a 6 p.m. deadline on the Thursday before the Tour du Teche 135.
