Wisconsin’s Culture - Wausau Whitewater 

Not the toughest or the longest, but great for training

It's not a long stretch of white water, only 0.35 miles, shown by the two yellow arrows, and it's not the roughest white water you can find, classified as Class II-III, the lower end of difficult.

but it is in downtown Wausau in Marathon County, and it is a great place for training --- training essential to white water rafting, kayaking, or even canoeing at higher levels. While training is a primary function, the whitewater here does host slalom races hosting competitors from around the world, and it is a great place in town to have some fun.


watching the training that was going on here was most instructive for me. I clicked off lots of photos and I want to present the ones I liked the best to show you.


This particular event involved a 2-3 hour introduction to whitewater kayaking training class.
