- Named in honor of a nearby historic Wilson County community, the SASPAMCO Paddling Trail is lined with tall trees and intriguing geologic features. The race will begin at the River Authority’s River Crossing Park and end at the River Authority’s John William Helton-San Antonio River Nature Park (Helton Park).
- Please note: River Crossing Park has a small parking lot and limited space in the turnaround driveway to drop off paddling equipment. Participants are encouraged to be dropped off with their equipment at River Crossing Park to stage for the race and have their support crew immediate go to either Graytown Park to meet the racers at the checkpoint location or to Helton Park to wait for and meet the participants at the finish line take out point. For those participants who do not have a support crew, they can drop off their equipment at River Crossing Park (it will be watched by race staff) and then go to Helton Park where a shuttle bus will provide service back to River Crossing Park. During the online registration process, participants will be required to inform the River Authority race organizers if you plan to utilize the shuttle bus service.
