8 Ball Kayak Sprint


The 8-Ball Kayak Sprint is the river’s answer to a demolition derby. Short but brutal, this now-legendary event sends as many as ten kayakers down through a 200 meter sprint in the narrow confines of Gore Creek, in the heart of the Vail Village. Along the way, boaters must avoid being knocked off by the 8 Ballers – ruthless kayakers in full body armor who try to slam into the competitors, knock them over and slow them down throughout the course. It is usually a bloody-knuckled hand that raises the coveted 8-ball trophy each year.
