Recognizing the new rage for kayaking, the Calico Rock/Pineville Chamber of Commerce has jumped on the bandwagon, presenting the first-ever Calico Rock Kayak Race, scheduled for June 23, with major prize money for winners in two divisions.
The two divisions are one-person and two-person kayaks.
The offer of prize money for the 11-mile run promises to bring participants from all over. First prize winners in each division will receive $150, with second- and third-place winners also being awarded cash.
The race begins at Red's Landing and the finish line will be at the Calico Rock Bridge.
More information is available at the Chamber of Commerce office on Main Street in Calico Rock, or at www.calicorock.us.
There is a $30 entry fee. Race registration will begin at 10:30 a.m., with a race start time of 11 a.m.
