VIRTUAL KAYAK RACE

The 2021 Riverbat Paddle Battle ran from Saturday, September 25 through Monday, October 25, 2021. Thank you to everyone who joined the virtual race to benefit the Austin Community College Foundation.

The event was held in partnership with Rowing Dock on Lady Bird Lake, featuring three course options to accommodate all skill levels — a 2-mile intermediate course, a 1-mile novice course or a 500-yard kids’ course.

Participants submitted race times online and the top finisher in each course received a special prize package by mail.

While the deadline has passed to compete and submit a race time, your registration includes a full-day kayak pass to Rowing Dock that is valid through March 2022 to use at your convenience.

We hope you’ll join us again in 2022!
