This summer grab a kayak, stand-up paddle board, or canoe and join #ExploreKentucky & friends for the sixth annual Bluegrass River Run (BRR), a celebration of the Kentucky River – the commonwealth’s namesake waterway. The event launches from Fort Boonesborough State Park which is located just south of Lexington and allows participants three different ways to experience the incredible beauty of the 60+ ft cliffs of the river’s palisades section and the camaraderie of fellow paddlers. The mainstay of the BRR is the scenic 6-mile Picking and Grinning Float Trip. Then for the folks who want more of a fitness challenge, there is the 19-mile Boonesborough to Valley View Challenge and 6-mile Clay Ferry’s Run, If you can’t BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat), don’t fret we will have plenty of canoes, kayaks, and SUPs for rent! After paddling festivities will go down as usual at Proud Mary BBQ. Registration will open soon!
