Race Update: MR340 POSTPONED until August 24th

Due to high waters and potentially hazardous race conditions, race officials, along with guidance from the U.S. Coast Guard, USGS, and the National Weather Service, have decided to postpone 5th Annual Missouri River 340 until August 24th, 2010. While the 3 Dudes are disappointed, we understand that this decision was made for our safety as well as the 339 other boats participating.

We plan to use the extra four weeks to become stronger, faster and put every finishing touch on our boat as we can. We've discussed it as a group and we'll be putting in one more long paddle prior to the race, probably upstream of Jefferson City to make more of the Missouri feel like home turf.

Again, although the race has been postponed a month, The 3 Dudes will still be competing and will be stronger than ever come race day. Thanks again for all of your continued support and we'll be racing August 24th!


  1. This is amazing! I'm so proud of you guys! I can't wait to follow it once it gets going! You need any P'Sghetti's bread for the trip? :)

    Love Melissa Ebel Brannan
