Guess the winning time, or closest to it, for the chance to win a Werner Ultimate Carbon Straight Shaft Whitewater Paddle!
You heard that right. Guess the winning time in this year’s Green Race—down to the nearest hundredth of a second—and you could win a Werner paddle! The race will be held Sat., Nov. 5, on North Carolina’s Green River. Entries will be accepted until midnight Nov. 4.
Of course, the hoopla this year is all about trying to best the coveted 4.0 time mark in the annual extreme race.
“The sub-4 run is gonna’ be a beast to chase because with only one run a year, the Green Race is one of the hardest races to put together a clean run,” says four-time race winner Dane Jackson, who won last year’s race with a time of 4:12.00. “It’s going to take a near perfect run to break that 4 minutes. “
Last year Jackson tried his hardest to best the 4-minute mark , clocking a couple 4:01 times in practice. In 2020, in a race held at regular flows, he hit 4:02.3, improving on 4:04.4 from the year prior.
Last year Paddling Life regular Janis won the contest with his winning guess of 4:08:20.
