Great Greenbrier River Race

April 27, 2019

The annual GREAT GREENBRIER RIVER RACE!

The race is held the last Saturday in April each year along the Greenbrier River Trail State Park. With great prizes, live music and good food,the event attracts a loyal following of racers and fans. Originally a team event with four members, canoeists, bicyclist and runner, the race has now attracted many people who do it solo. But there is still room for the whole family or the family dog on a team! Kayaks and canoes are both encouraged and the many categories encourage prizes for many racers.

Proceeds from entry fees and our generous sponsors allow the trail association to sponsor various projects to improve and promote the trail.

The race is a triathalon. You start in Marlinton, WV run to the trail and take it north to the turn around point then right back into town, to make 3 miles, then you jump in your boat and paddle down the river to the blue bridge in Buckeye, which is about 4 miles of paddling, then you run over to your bike and ride south down the trail for a bit and turn around to head north past where you started and all the way back up to Marlinton making a 10 mile bike ride and the end of the race!
