Register Now! For Sinnemahone Paddle April 6, First of 3 Extreme Sports Events In Cameron County

There’s not much time left to register for the April 6 Sinnemahone Paddle on Sinnemahoning Creek starting at 11:00 a.m., the first of three extreme sport competitions planned for Cameron County this year.
The Sinnemahone Paddle was renamed after long-time race director Randy Bailey stepped down last year from the Cameron County Canoe and Kayak Classic.  The Paddle is now under the direction of the Cameron County Chamber of Commerce.  
The 12 mile race drawing competitors from West Virginia, Florida, New York, Ohio, Canada, Germany and across the state of Pennsylvania.  
“It is important this race continues, to show off Cameron County and its natural resources,” explains chamber executive director, Tina Solak. “ Most of those pre-registered are from outside of the area.  We encourage those paddlers to spend the night in our hotels, eat at our restaurants and hopefully fall in love with our area and return.”
Several restaurants in the Driftwood and Sinnemahoning area rolling out the red carpet for competitors and offering entertainment following the event.
Safety is the first concern and more than 30 emergency responders from Cameron, Elk, Centre, Clearfield, and Clinton County will line the course.  
The Fish and Boat Commission has set a minimum and high-water mark to regulate the race.  If the water conditions do not meet those expectations, the race will be canceled, and partial refunds will be issued.  Water conditions can be found at Sinnemahone website.  
New this year will be the addition of breakfast available for purchase at the start line from Emporium Rotary and the Driftwood Senior Center.  
Student Transportation of America will provide a free shuttle from the finish to start line.  Spectators can pick up food from HillBilly Eat N Shack food truck at the finish line.  
Goodie bags are provided to all racers and a number of door prizes will be handed out.  
The top three finishers in each category will take home a hand cut and engraved replica of a paddle.  The cherry wood donated by Emporium Hardwoods is cut and engraved by Total Engraving then finished with a sealant donated by Cool’s Auto.

The next event is a 55 mile Sinnemahone Gravel Road Bike Race that will include two state forests, two counties and one state park.   That race is planned for September 28. The final race is the Sinnemahone Ultra Trail Run on October 19.
