Katfish Katy's to Cooper's Canoe Clean-up

Huntsdale, MO

Over the course of a year, trash along the Missouri River builds up along riverbanks and in log piles as the river fluctuates between high and low flows — causing a hazard to fish and wildlife and spoiling the natural beauty of our waterways. To do our part, we are cleaning up our “home stretch” here on the Lower Missouri, from Katfish Katies to Cooper’s Landing by canoe!

2015 Missouri American Water MR340 - July 28-31

Kansas City, KS, to St. Charles, MO

A collection of photos, articles and videos about the MR340

With river levels edging toward flood stage along parts of the race course, this year's race was the biggest ever. Hot temps, a nasty storm and a speedy river didn't stop many racers, and several records were broken. 

Great job racers, volunteers and ground crews! Thank you for your support!

Since 2007, Missouri River Relief has been a partner in the MR340 race - a 340 mile paddling race across the state of Missouri. Racers purchase super cool race stickers and all of that money goes to support our efforts. We bring as many safety boat crews as we can and help up and down the race course.
