Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. Here is our final interview covering the 14th Annual Green Race, some two weeks late, with Adriene Levknecht. Apologies for taking so long we were slammed getting LVM #32 “Glory Seeking $#@! Runner” shipping, and our holiday specials on the store.
Adriene was the female champ in the 2009 Green River Race and in the process of getting first place she shattered records on the course. The first female to go under five minutes (4:59) in the 14 year history of the Green Race, this little lady is a pleasure to watch both on and off the river! Enjoy.
Astral has supported the Green Race for a long time and this year donated a lifejacket to be awarded to the best green race swim. Mike “Mexico” Metzger took the gold. We’re glad you’re ok Mexico!
Thanks to Watershed Drybags for their continued support for the Green Race and for making the best drybags around.
The Nantahala Outdoor Center has long supported the Green Race as well as kayaking all over the southeast US. Thanks for your continued support and way to raise ‘em strong!
This year’s race was graced with many golden strokes. Here’s some favorites. Congrats to all the golden strokers out there and thanks to Werner for their continued support of grass roots kayaking!
Thanks to Teva for providing radios to make life easier for our time keepers and their continued support for the Green Race.
Pyranha donated skirts to the racers and is always down to support this awesome grass roots event. They even had top minority representation this year, Old Guy’s, C1’s, and Ferners’!
Woody once again graciously hosted hundreds of rowdy kayakers at his place for some apres-kayak activities. Complete with band and late night Red Bull DJ, this was one of the best parties we’ve been to in a long time/ever. Thanks LL and Woody.

This week we speak on the phone with Sam England, who’s returning for his 3rd Green Race, racing both long and short boats. Sam had a rough line at Gorilla two years ago but didn’t let that stop him from coming back. Hear why Sam likes the race and can’t stay away.
