The Green Race in North Carolina has proven one of the most exciting whitewater races for nearly three decades. The 27th chapter of the self-proclaimed, “greatest show in all of sports” promises to be as entertaining as ever. Fortunately, you can watch all the fast lines and carnage from the comfort of your home by streaming the Green Race live.
For 24 iterations watching the Green Race meant paddling the class IV-V+ section of river or hiking the 800-foot descent on the two-mile Pulliam Creek Trail. But this changed in 2020 when organizers turned their gaze on the future of the race toward the spectating experience. That year, the Green Race was broadcast live for the first time. That meant the athletic event in a remote gorge was brought to viewers around the globe. A new benchmark for the race had been set.
For 2022, the Green Race marks its third year as a pay-per-view sporting spectacle — complete with drones and commentary. So fire up the hors d’oeuvres, grab some cold beverages and invite your paddling buddies over because the first racer is set to start at noon ET on November 5.
