The Great Trent River Raft Race is back AGAIN!
In the 70’s and early 80’s there was an event….an event that drew thousands to the shores of the Trent River to watch a spectacle like no other. Hundreds of participants built homemade rafts and raced in The Great Trent River Raft Race.
A couple of decades later the race is back!
June 2018 saw the successful return of the race to New Bern NC – folks from all over the State grabbed their paddle boards, jumped on their kayaks, built paddle and pedal rafts and got together with friends for a fantastic day of fun on the water!
The great news is…..we’re back – AGAIN for 2020!
Join the Fun –
Design It – Build It – Race It!
