27th Annual Scantic Spring Splash

The 27th annual Scantic Spring Splash will be held on Saturday March 31st on the Scantic River starting on Quality Ave in Somers, CT and ending at the Powder Mill Barn in Enfield, CT. Registration starts at 9:00AM and the race starts at 11:30AM.

The novice course is 2.5 miles of curvy flat water

with some small rapids. The Intermediate/Expert course is 5 miles with 4 Class II/III rapids. There is a new rapid this year at the location of the former Springborn Dam that will eliminate the dreaded Heart Attack Hill portage, but will provide its own challenges.

WARNING - the Springborn Dam removal project is still an active work site with several cables across the river in the area of the 191 bridge that pose a significant hazard! We expect them to be completed sometime in February, but please check back here before attempting any practice runs in this area! !

Before, during, and after the race hot & cold food and snacks will be provided by the Scantic River Watershed Association for a nominal fee in the Powder Mill Barn. Award ceremony and video from the race will be at the barn after the last boaters cross the finish line!
