Road To 100

The South Ram River, near the small town of Nordegg, Alberta, stands out to a select group of kayakers because of a beautiful series of waterfalls spread throughout its canyon walls. The tallest waterfall on the river, Ram Falls, cascades nearly 100 feet to a pool below. For years, paddlers have visited the South Ram River to run the Class 5 canyon, but always opt to enjoy the view of Ram safely from the riverbanks. T

Road To 100

Three kayakers logged the first descent of Ram in 2012. Six years later, extremely low water levels forced Edward Muggridge to abandon his first attempt at Ram Falls. He all but gave up his dream to run this hundred-footer. Liam Fournier followed Edward Muggridge’s journey to paddle 100-foot Ram Falls.

Bren’s Park Jam – Tees Barrage

Bren made it up to the North East and the Tees Barrage.  Here’s his thoughts – The thing I loved most about this stop of the park jam is how unfathomably keen everyone was to hurl themselves in at the deep end on the short course, the enthusiasm and commitment to just give it a go was simply stunning.

I had a brilliant night being a part of that and I am stoked to come back again and kayak with everybody!
