the Mississippi Challenge
on the 4th of July
The race will occur on the Mississippi River Alton Pool formed by the Mel Price Lock and Dam, located upriver from the city of Saint Louis at the Lincoln Shield access. This section of the Mississippi River is very much like a large lake and the race will occur in an off-channel portion of the river. Racers will navigate a triangular 3 mile loop.
