Elite Division Finals: This will be for the money (so to speak). The top 12 qualifiers from Saturday will go into the main final where they will have one run to get the fastest time possible. This time will be added to their qualifying time from the Saturday. The combined time will be competitors final tally. Fastest combined times win. Water level dependent but this will likely be run on the Slipping Rock rapid On the Sunday morning. This venue is prime for spectating and will be a very exciting cap to a great weekend. Max 12 top qualifying mens and womens competitors from Saturday
