Alabama Cup Races

The Alabama Cup Races have been in existence since 1992 and were developed to
acknowledge the best racers of the three. The Mulberry Fork Canoe & Kayak Races
started in 1981. In 1991 the Locust Fork Invitational began, and a year later the
Locust Fork White Water Classic was added.
In 1994, the Mulberry Fork Canoe & Kayak races hosted the qualifying races for the
U.S. Olympics. Some famous racers have been Eric Jackson, Rich Weiss, Davey
Hearn and Phillip Foti.
The races are managed and promoted by the Alabama Cup Racing Association. Each
race is managed by specific committees comprised of members of state paddling
organizations, conservation groups, your average everyday paddlers, and others in the
community willing to volunteer for these exciting events. ACRA and all other groups
involved are non-profit organizations.
These races have been possible only through the very hard work of many people
donating their time and from the donations of food, items/services and financial
support of individuals and businesses. If you would like to participate, please contact
