Great Russian River Race
The emphasis of the Great Russian River Race is on adventure, competition and fun. Now in its 7th year, the race features both pros and recreational paddlers competing in separate races which both end at Johnson’s Beach. Johnson’s Beach is proud to host the free Race Party from 11-4 p.m. featuring live music, beer and food, and an award ceremony. The Race is a fundraiser for Russian Riverkeeper, a non-profit environmental group that protects the Russian River.
