Essex River Race is a 5.5+ mile open water event from the Essex River at Route 133 in Essex, out behind the barrier beaches of Ipswich and back. Participants row or paddle small boats through one of the most scenic tidal areas in New England. The Essex River Race is open to all seaworthy human-powered rowing and paddle boats. Serious racers are allowed and encouraged, within the guidelines of safety and sportsmanship, to push one another to their limits. Casually oriented participants are equally welcome, and may cover the course in a more relaxed fashion. No rain date. There is always an event. Awards will be given!
Race is capped at 180 boats. No walk-ins on race day. For more information visit www.blackburnchallenge.com/Essex.html
