Seeking 2016 National World Championship Qualifiers

The USRA is seeking bids for R-6 National World Championship Qualifiers in 2016! Be sure to get your bid in soon for the R6 (6 – man raft) National Race. This is a great opportunity to showcase your river and give your team a home advantage!Note: The R-4 bid has been awarded to Oregon. The race will take place on the Upper Klamath River. Stay tuned for more details soon. Why an R6 AND R4 National World Championship Qualifiers in 2016? The current schedule of National Races (either R6 or R4) is currently held within the same year (often a few months) of the International Rafting Federations World Championships. The USRA would like to change that schedule to allow the winning team of Nationals more time to train and raise necessary funds to travel and compete at the world level of raft racing. In order to achieve this, we are required to hold 2 national events in one year. After 2016, we will resume a rotating year of R4 and R6 National Races.
