The results are in! After nearly 700 votes, taking home the fame, glory, honor and riches of being the Green Race T-Shirt design master, winning for the third year in a row, the undisputed king of gorilla art…Scott Sullivan!!!!
Let’s begin with the first paragraph of the safety waiver:
“Racing the Narrows is exceedingly dangerous. Doing so entails known and unanticipated risks which could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis and death. This is not theoretical: several boaters have died running the Narrows and another has been paralyzed from the upper body down for life. Accidents resulting in dislocated shoulders, deep lacerations and extensive dental work are common. Please do not take your decision to race lightly.”
Anyone who has ever raced the Green or made the trip in to spectate knows it is something special. The energy, excitement and beauty of the place leaves a lasting impression. Every year more and more people want to take part in this world class event. With increasing numbers of participants and spectators comes more challenges. We are happy to announce ACA and AMONGSTiT will be partnering again this year. This means each racer is only required to buy their bib for $20. All racers are responsible for their own health and liability insurance.
