Canoe Racing on the Mulberry Fork River

Chris and Claudette Stec recently participated in the Mulberry Fork Canoe Races, just north of Birmingham, AL. They raced together in the downriver canoe event, which was a 3.5 mile race on the Mulberry Fork River through a series of class II rapids. Chris then raced in the open canoe slalom event, which is a series of 25 gates that a competitor must maneuver through. The gates are spread out over a 200 yard section of a class II rapid. At the end of the day, Chris placed second in the slalom race, behind world freestyle canoe champion, Eli Helbert.
