Officials from The Texas Water Safari announced that the 53rd annual Texas Water Safari will be postponed, for the second time, to July 11th.  It had originally been postponed until June 27th due to the flooding conditions on the lower Guadalupe River.

Known as the “The World’s Toughest Canoe Race,” the Texas Water Safari is a 260 mile canoe race down various rivers and bays, for 100 hours straight, every year in June.

The board believes that the lower section of the Guadalupe River is still in a flood stage.  The lower end of the Guadalupe is where the finish line is located, but if the conditions have not changed by race time, the finish line will be moved up the river to the Swinging Bridge checkpoint.

This is only the second time in the 53 years of the Texas Water Safari that the race had to be postponed twice due to river conditions, but this will be the last time the race will be postponed.
