About the Race
The NWCC is a thriving two-day event and one of the biggest races in the country! The event boasts two amazing race courses on both the East Fork Lewis River and Canyon Creek. The event headquarters is set at scenic Sunset Falls Campground where participants can enjoy a great view of racers negotiating the beautiful Sunset Falls, enjoy a great BBQ, music, and have an all-around fun time! Day two competitors head over to Canyon Creek to challenge themselves on one of the best and most beautiful race courses in the nation!
The Northwest Creeking Competition, formerly known as the Canyon Creek Race, was started to preserve and save the scenic lower stretch of Canyon Creek WA from hydroelectric development. Today the NWCC is a weekend long whitewater festival with courses on both Canyon Creek and The East Fork Lewis River and every April kayakers from all over come to the scenic Washington state to celebrate the river life!
