What Date Start-End Location
GS down river race/Head 2 Head Tuesday 25. June 11:00 - 14:30 Strandaelva

A day of raft racing for mixed R4 teams.

Giant Slalom & Head 2 Head

A down-river race with several challenging gates. Time penalties are added for touched and missed gates. The race course is from the Klatrepark to Kåre, with the positioning of the gates to be determined by the river level.

    • Staggered start, every 3 minutes in start list order
    • All members must be present at finish line
  • START: Le’man – running start – all team members standing at the start line – raft in place at river side


Head 2 Head:

You know the drill! 2 boats, head-2-head knock-out heats.

    • Klatrepark to Laila finish banner
    • Knock out system – until the final pair of teams reach the final!
    • Heats decided by results from the Giant Slalom result positions
    • Highest ranked team chooses start position
    • LeMans1 Start – From a line, boats on bank, paddles in boat
  • Winning team of each round MUST get their raft on the trailer and get back to start line ASAP



Open class, Masters – Athletes from 40 yrs and up, R4 (max 4 people) girls, boys or mixed.
The final placings are worked out by adding the points gained from both Giant Slalom and Head to head races, so to win, a team will have to race fast and consistently!

(with keeping this as an R4 event we hope to gather enough entries to hold Mens and Ladies Classs, but this will depend on the total number of entries and will be decided closer to the date)




The raft racing is followed by a mass start river board event with an open mens and open womens class. Registration for this is separate from the Rafting Event

This event is for river people that are experienced with Riverboards and are comfortable in class 3-4 white water.  It’s tough, exhausting, but one hell of a ride!


CASH PRIZE and goodies for combined results from BOTH RAFT EVENTS
