Verde River Runoff 2020


SEPTEMBER 12th - SEPTEMBER 20th, 2020

8th Annual Verde River Canoe, Kayak, & SUP Race

The Verde River Runoff goes Virtual!

We are pleased to announce the much-awaited update on the 2020 Verde River Runoff!

At Friends, we take pride in our efforts to support a healthy Verde – which includes encouraging activity of all kinds throughout the year! With the continued threat of COVID-19 within our state, however, we have decided that the 2020 Runoff will be a VIRTUAL event. This means that even more people will be able to participate in supporting a healthy, flowing Verde River system!

We hope you will take this opportunity to enjoy river-friendly, safe fun on the Verde River or a body of water near you.

September 21st, 2020 we will have a Virtual Awards Party.



  • When

  • Saturday, September 12, 2020 - Sunday, September 20, 2020

  • Where

  • This year we are going virtual! Therefore, you may paddle on any body of water, anywhere in the world! If you have signed up for the competitive race – you will have a week to paddle the same stretch of the Verde as we have in past Runoffs – White Bridge River Access Point to Beasley Flat!

Additional Information

Friends of the Verde River encourages paddlers to check the water levels prior to going on the water – whenever they are paddling. This site will help you to better get an idea of current water levels and flows before getting out on the water!
