Riverthon℠ is a series of three paddlesport racing events that take place on the mighty Ohio River within the greater Louisville, KY area. Our signature event is the Louisville 50 Race, a 50 mile race from Westport to West Point, KY. Enter the Mayors Cup 22 Race and be the first male and female solo paddler to cross the finish line and have your name engraved on the Louisville Mayor’s Cup trophy. Experience the thrill of open water paddling racing 7 miles downstream on the Ohio River in the Riverthon℠ 7 mile Race. Each of these are a fun, challenging, and unique way to connect with the water, fellow paddlers, and experience both the rural beauty of the Ohio River Valley and the Louisville area urban landscapes and architecture along the way.
