Paddle for the Big Muddy

Race to the Dome

11th Annual Race to the Dome - Sat, October 10, 2020

Race to the Dome is a canoe/kayak/SUP race on the Missouri River. Two race courses are available to paddlers - Hartsburg to Jefferson City (15.8 miles) and Providence to Jefferson City (27.6 miles).

Proceeds from the race support Missouri River Relief's efforts to connect people to the Missouri River through hands-on, on-the-river clean-ups, education and recreation.

The race will start Saturday morning at 9 am at the Hartsburg Access and the Providence Access points. The race will start in heats by division.

Race time will be between 2 and 4 hours depending on the paddlers’ experience.  This is a perfect opportunity for novice paddlers to gain race experience and enjoy the beauty of the Missouri River.

NOTE - Due to COVID precautions there will NOT be a free pre-race shuttle for the Hartsburg race this year. We apologize for the hassle.

​We are currently under a Boone County Order limiting race participants to 50 paddlers per race start. We are very sorry for the disruption this causes this year. But when each race start reaches 50 paddlers we will have to close registration. 

PROVIDENCE RACE START REGISTRATION IS CLOSED AS OF 9/27/20
