173 paddlers crush the Race to the Dome!

Race to the Dome

For the ninth straight year, we hosted the Race to the Dome, a fundraiser paddle adventure ending at Jefferson City's beautiful Wilson's Serenity Point at Noren Access. For many in the racing community, this is a traditional fall closure to the racing season.

Thanks to a generous donation from Missouri American Water, all of racer registrations support the organization's efforts to connect people to the Missouri River through direct action and education. 

Racers can choose either the 15.8 mile race from Hartsburg or the 27.6 mile race from Providence Landing on Perche Creek. 

This year, 173 paddlers in 122 boats started and completed the race on a chilly and breezy, but beautiful fall day.

13th Annual Missouri American Water MR340
- July 24-27, 2018

Kansas City, KS, to St. Charles, MO

A collection of photos, articles and videos about the MR340

Since 2007, Missouri River Relief has been a partner in the MR340 race - a 340 mile paddling race across the state of Missouri. Racers purchase super cool race stickers and all of that money goes to support our efforts. We bring as many safety boat crews as we can and help up and down the race course.
