The Whitewater Rescue Race is a pioneering idea of a competition that combines whitewater rescue techniques.
The race is a pioneering one of its kind, stands for its mission to spread and emphasize the need for trained Swiftwater Professionals and Safe Whitewater Adventure services across the European whitewater landscape.
It is organized with the intention of returning annually for the scene, becoming THE event that symbolically opens the season of whitewater river services and rescue teams at every spring.
This symbolic season opening is also dedicated to the aim of reminding the service providers of high-standard safety in swiftwater rescue teams and water based adventure services in the European region. We surely believe that the event soon will grow to become world-wide known and will step over its so far European boundaries.
