The Buck Creek Bash is a true adventure sports celebration/competition hosted each fall by Friends of Buck Creek. Started in 2011, the Buck Creek Bash features the grueling Paddle & Portage Race. Racers paddle across the CJ Brown Reservoir at Buck Creek State Park, then portage 3/4 mile down to the creek. The final leg has racers navigating a 4 mile stretch of Buck Creek's countless rapids through Springfield. The Finish Line and after party are at the Musuem of Art.
If competition is not your thing, on-lookers can ride aside the creek on the bike path and watch the carnage unfold along the way. Come watch the racers suffer, while you enjoy some food truck grub and beer!
The 2014 Buck Creek Paddle & Portage is September 20th at 1pm. To register for the race go to Active.com. Follow our Facebook page to keep up on the upcoming 2014 Buck Creek Paddle & Portage and other activities throughout the year!
