About Rivah Run

Rivah Run is a fun, open, 2-mile paddling event for children and adults of all ages (under 18 must be with adult).

Any type of paddle craft is eligible for this “POKER RUN.”

Beginning and ending at the Choptank River Yacht Club, each paddler stops at a series of five Dealer checkpoints to receive a playing card. At the finish, the best 5 card poker hand wins the first pick of prize options with a cash value of $750.

Local businesses have also contributed prizes for other winning poker hands.

Rivah Run is a Caroline Summerfest event presented by Caroline County Recreation & Parks in partnership

with Maryland Natural Resource Police, Underground Construction, and the Choptank River Yacht Club.
