New 24-Hour Kayak Distance Record on Idaho’s Salmon

“The foursome set the world record, still pending approval from Guinness, this weekend (June 3-4) by paddling a high-water run linking Idaho’s Middle Fork, Main and Lower Salmon rivers, clocking a whopping 287.5 miles in 24 hours. “The previous record was 274 miles,” says Bradt, who celebrated his 31st birthday on the record-setting excursion, “and at the end of a big 24 hours of continuous paddling our GPS read 287.5.”

The previous two distance records came on the Yukon, first by Ian Adamson’s 261-mile sufferfest, and in 2010 by wildwater paddler Andy Corra, from Durango, Colorado, who broke it by paddling 273.5 miles in 24 hours during the Yukon River Quest.”
