Paddling in Renton

We meet on the dock of Renton Rowing Center

  • Use Cedar River Trail Park as your GPS destination.
  • Make sure it directs you to N 6th St (not N 8th St - that will take you into Boeing parking lots).  Ignore the notice that says the park closes at dusk - over the last few years that has not happened. 
  • You'll go down the roadway in the park that is between the Cedar River (which you won't be able to see), and Boeing.  Go right to the end where the road essentially does a u-turn.  Many of us park just after the u-turn on the river side.   Join us around the corner at the rowing center. If you see people wearing PFD’s or carrying paddles, that will be us!

Register here for each event.  

Much planning is involved to balance the boat so if you cannot make it, change your reply on the webpage.  If your RSVP changes less than 24 hours before the session time:

  • Notify Lesley directly at 206-666-0261 or Crystal at 801-603-1357

  • On the website, update your RSVP as appropriate (if time/circumstances allow)

  • Send a message via the Signal group (WAM Team Communications) if it is very last minute, eg flat tire, delayed at work

We train year-round; if sessions are canceled due to inclement weather, which does happen, you will receive an email and a Signal notification.  


Come prepared to paddle with a great coach and super supportive group!  We are excited to have you!
