2017 Lord of the Fork Race Results

Thanks to all who endured some rather moist and frigid weather to take part in the 2017 LOTF race. We had observations of sleet at the finish line. I was wondering if we would finish the race in a snowstorm. The view upstream with mist jetting up from the turbulent water as the temperature fell was pretty awesome.

Our aspirations to become more tech savvy were challenged by the affect of rain on the iPad screens. After cross referencing notes and other materials, I think we have an accurate set of records. If you have anything to add, I’ll be happy to consider it.

As always, events like this take efforts of more than one. I would like to thank Sara Mullett for all of the registration help, bib collecting and for stoking an awesome finish line bonfire. Willy Witt for starting everyone off. Damon Patterson for spotting incoming bib numbers, and those that set safety along the course.

If those who still have bibs would be so kind to return them, it would be appreciated. These have been provided by the generosity of a few folks and are very expensive to replace.

Thanks again to all who make the Russell Fork a special place to come home to each year. Hope to see you next year,

Eric Henrickson  – Race Director

What Jackson Kayak would you like to paddle in 2017?

The Jackson Action Wagon’s is in its 11th year of spreading kayaking fun by providing FREE JK demos on the traveling showcase trailer. :-)

I am now taking suggestions for what JK whitewater, fishing/hunting , recreation/touring, kids kayaks or SUP’s you would like to see stocked in the 2017 J.A.W. Fleet.  Take a look at all the current products we are offering this year with the link below and let me know your thoughts by 3/1/2017:

http://jacksonkayak.com/jk-kayaks/

I already have a Antix M, Antix L, Karma Md and Karma Unlimited (UL) in stock.  This leaves me with about 6-8 more spots for boats on the JAW, so let me hear your suggestions to help stock the fleet!  I plan to pick-up the new fleet at the factory toward the end of March, so stay tuned for new JK demos coming to the Tri-Cities soon!

Click on this link http://worldkayakblogs.com/wildwildwes/contact-me/ to send me JK suggestions.  Thanks for any input you give!

2016 Lord of the Fork Race Results

natefry wrote 451 days ago:


This was the 22nd edition of the Lord of the Fork Race. At 105 racers, we had a record field yet again. It was a fantastic sight to see both sides of the river filled with racers and spectators. The Russell Fork is a special place. Quite a few present were here when the race first began in 1995. One of them was even on the podium.

An event like this takes a team to put on. Thanks are in order to those who helped make it all work:

Stewart Caldwell and JB Seay filled in for Willy Witt at the start. With 30 second intervals and a new timing system, this was a busy job.

James Welch and Gerald Delong headed up safety

It was a pleasure to have Jay Ditty present the awards. As the longest tenured race director, his insights are quite entertaining. He also kept time at the finish line in the event that the computer system failed. I am grateful that it did not, as calculating all those times is a wicked tedious job.

Bob Larkin has done a great job bringing the Rendezvous back to a worthy event. This event is tied to the race. I hope to see it continue to grow.

Jennifer Taylor made and donated our finisher medals. These are unique and beautiful pieces.

Sara Mullett was at the finish and took over 1000 photos of racers. These are worth checking out. I’ll have a link to them soon.

Sara and Jay for the starting order. Next year my goal is to successfully implement all of it.

Lila Thomas was key in collecting the bibs. We have several thousand dollars invested here, and they are not easily replaced. Thanks to everyone for being on board.

We were again a bit late on the start. As the race has grown, this has been a challenge to keep things on schedule. Thank you for your patience.

Steve Ruth has maintained the history of the race. This year the 1996 results were discovered. We now have a complete history.

See you next year,
Eric Henrickson

Top 3 Men:

  1. Dane Jackson – Karma Unlimited
