IRF Ziyuan 2019 World Cup fbook notice

China 2019 Rafting World Cup now accepting team applications

The city of Ziyuan will once again throw open its doors and welcome teams from across the globe to the Ziyuan Rafting World Cup – this event will also be the 2020 IRF WRC Pre-Worlds event. Raft race teams are now invited to apply for registration to this now famous World Cup event. The competition will run from 21 – 27 July 2019 (dates changed). Racing will be in the R4 format for men’s and women’s teams. As this event will be a World Cup event, racing will only be in the Open category however, teams from all age categories are welcome to race.

All racing will take place on the Wu Pai river in Guang Xi Province. All four race disciplines will be run with teams taking on the rapids in the Wu Pai valley. Sprint, Head-to-Head and Slalom will all be run on a section now familiar with teams who have fallen in love with the river, region and people of Ziyuan County. Downriver will see teams sliding through the start line and down a weir to commence their journey through the twists, turns, rapids and gorge of the Wu Pai until finishing in what is normally a sleepy hamlet.

Teams can expect nothing less than spectacular in all elements of this event. From the warm hospitality, to the welcoming city, to the phenomenal ceremonies. With bigger than ever prize monies up for grabs, this event is set to be a sparkling jewel in the IRF race calendar this year.

City of Ziyuan hosts will cover all accommodation, meals and transfer costs for registered teams. Travel visas and flights will be the responsibility of each team.
The IRF has once again secured discounts with oneworld airline alliance offering up to 25% off standard flights to Guilin, China.
