Youghness Monster 25-Mile Kayak and Canoe Race is a 25-mile down river race. Class I and II water, depending on river levels. The race is a benefit race to raise funds for the West Newton Volunteer Fire Company for equipment and operating expenses. The race will have several classes including: unlimited, sea kayak, tandem, recreational and fishing kayaks. There will also be several classes for canoes.
This year we will have the finish at Cedar Creek County Park. Better parking and easier takeout. There will also be a dam release to do a test paddle of the course on Saturday.
