Charles City Whitewater Challenge called off for 2020

To The Press

The Charles City Whitewater Challenge, first rescheduled from its June date to Sept. 19, has now been canceled due to continued concerns with COVID-19, the Chamber of Commerce announced.

With the health and safety of participants and community members taking priority, the planning committee determined it is not in the best interest of paddlers and spectators to hold an event that draws together people of all ages from Iowa and surrounding states and puts them in close vicinity during this time of uncertainty, said Tourism Coordinator Ginger Williams.

“We thank you for your continued support of our whitewater park and community and look forward to seeing everyone at our 2021 event,” Williams said.
