2012 REP Whitewater Challenge
$5,000 in cash and prizes for freestyle, SUP surf and downriver events at Select REP-designed river parks

Recreation Engineering & Planning, the nation’s leader in whitewater/river park design, has announced a new REP event series dovetailing on existing river festivals and competitions at REP-designed river parks throughout the country, offering up more than $5,000 in cash and prizes.

The premise of the series is simple: to reward kayakers and stand-up paddlers for attending and competing in events at REP-designed courses, while calling attention to the growing trend of how river parks can revitalize and provide an economic boon to communities.

Events in the series include:

CKS Paddlefest
(Buena Vista, CO): May 25-27, 2012
Paddling Life Invitational
(Steamboat, CO): May 28, 2012
Lyons Outdoor Games
(Lyons, CO): June 8-10, 2012
FIBArk (Salida, Co):
June 15-17, 2012
Gunnison Whitewater Festival
(Gunnison, CO): June 22-24, 2012
Missoula Whitewater Festival
(Missoula, MT): June 29-July 1, 2012
Cascade Whitewater Festival
(Cascade, ID): July 7-8, 2012

The point system will break down as follows for freestyle kayak, SUP surf and downriver-race events: 1st – 12 points; 2nd – 10 points; 3rd – 8 points; 4th – 6 points; 5th – 4 points; 6th – 3 points; 7th – 2 points; 8th-10th – 1 point. All REP results and placings will be based on organizers’ existing scoring systems and final official results. Competitors’ top five scores will be factored into the overall REP standings in freestyle kayak, surfing-oriented SUP and downriver* events, with the final overall winners determined after the series’ final event in Cascade, ID, July 7-8.

* Note: Downriver events include Lyons, Steamboat, Salida and Gunnison

The $2,500 purse will be broken down as follows:

Freestyle Kayak (men):
1st overall: $600
2nd overall: $300
3rd overall: $150
