Stand Up For The Hooch 2019:
High Country Outfitters is proud to bring you their “Stand Up for the Hooch” race for the 8th consecutive year! Paddle the famous Chattahoochee River, just minutes from downtown Atlanta. All ages and ability levels are welcome, and there will be a free kids’ race. First time paddlers are encouraged to participate, and experts will enjoy the chance to experience one of the biggest races in the southeast! Family and friends are welcome to watch from the start at Morgan Falls Overlook Park in Sandy Springs, GA. They are excited to be a point qualifying race in the Southern Stoke Paddle Series again for the 2019 season. This year’s race will have 2 courses: a 2 mile race and an 6 mile race.
New for 2019: They are opening the race to additional watercraft for the Long Course Only! Classifications will be determined based on registration. Any craft type with 5 or more registrants by June 16th will be awarded for this race as a standalone division.
