-

- Advertisment -

It’s East Coast extreme kayaking race season, COVID be damned. And it kicked off the last weekend of October on Kentucky’s Russell Fork. Every October, boaters around the country rendezvous in Kentucky to celebrate the annual fall releases on the Class II-V Russell Fork. The stoke builds all month long, culminating in the Lord of the Fork Race, a predecessor to the upcoming Green Race a few weeks later. Read on to see how PL partner CKS worker Nick Gilbert fared (hint: it was 71 places behind Dane Jackson, who took first in 6 min. 24 seconds, 14 seconds ahead of runner-up Issac Hull).
