Details Craig

The Rich Weiss Memorial Race has been the CCE Paddling Club's major annual slalom race for nearly 20yrs.

The race is named for American Olympian Richard Weiss who spent many years training with the Chilliwack Centre of Excellence at the Tamihi Rapids throughout the 1980's and 1990's. Rich left our small community too early in an incident on the White Salmon River in Washington a year after his tremendous 5th place performance at the 1996 Olympics.

The Rich Weiss Race is part of the NW Cup Series and is used as a gauge every year by our BC Slalom Team members as they prepare for National Team Selections and the upcoming race season.

Open to all whitewater paddlers, this race is not only competitive but a fun way to test your skills against some of our young slalom stars AND former slalom stars.
