Due to construction delays at the new Ashley River Park, the Ashley River Adventure Race has been postponed to March 20th of 2022. 

 

     

The 2022 Ashley River Adventure Race will be held on March 20th of 2022. All registered participants will have the option to transfer their registration or request a refund.

 

This unique race will feature a 5k +/- trail run at the soon-to-open Ashley River Park, an 8-mile downriver paddle, a post-race party at the Inn at Middleton Place and a Fun Float (no running; untimed; you paddle your boat with everyone else) for those that want to participate in a more leisurely manner.  As always, post party tickets are available for your friends, family, and general spectators.


We do not provide your kayak or SUP.  Bring your own or rent one.  We are currently working on a new rental provider, and will update that information here once available.  If you already reserved a boat through Edisto River Adventures, we will transfer that reservation to the new company.   
 
Single night rooms stays at a deeply discounted rate are also available to participants by booking directly through the Inn.  $150+tax per night gets you a river view queen room for stays during race weekend.  The deal even includes admission to the gardens next door ($88 value!) and there is an amazing restaurant on site!

Fun Float
The Fun Float is a great way to experience the racing action and the beautiful Ashley Scenic River first-hand, but at a more leisurely pace.  Fun Floaters shove of at the paddle course start prior to the racers and take their time paddling downriver to the Inn at Middleton Place where they participate in all the party festivities.  Event shirts are not included in the fun float registration fee.  To receive a shirt you must select it as an add-on during registration. Fun floaters 12 and under are free.  This is not a 'tubing' type float.  You must paddle a kayak, canoe or SUP to make it downriver to the takeout before the tide changes.
 
Post-Race Party and Chick-fil-A Dorchester Road Awards Ceremony:
One ticket to the post-race party at the Inn at Middleton Place is included in your race and fun float registration. Additional party attendees ages 13 and over must purchase party tickets in advance. These tickets are also available on this site. Post-race party ticket includes BBQ, beer/wine, entertainment, lawn games and the Chick-fil-A Awards Ceremony right at the race finish.  Admission to Middleton Plantation is not included in your registration fee, but can be purchased separately should you wish to tour the grounds. 
 
Shuttle Details:
Shuttles only transport registered participants from the Inn at Middleton Place (race finish) to Ashley River Park (race start). They will not transport boats, boards or paddles. To utilize the shuttle, drop your boat at Ashley River Park, drive your vehicle to Inn at Middleton Place, and catch the shuttle back to Ashley River Park.  Your car will be waiting on you when you finish.  Drive time between the two locations is about 10 minutes.
