On July 27th and 28th, Kansas City, Kansas Rotarians assisted with registration and logistics for the Missouri River 340 race.
The Missouri River 340 is an endurance race across the state of Missouri. This year, the race ran from July 28-31, 2015.  Competitors started in Kansas City, Kansas at Kaw Point Park and finished, some of them anyway, in St. Charles, Missouri. With numerous towns and hamlets, the course offers plenty of opportunity for resupply while in route. Participants are allowed exactly 88 hours to complete the course. There are nine checkpoints along the route where paddlers are required to sign in and sign out. To finish this race in 88 hours is a huge accomplishment. Only 2/3 of the teams were able to do that last year. There are no dams, locks or portages on this stretch of the Missouri River.
- Rotarian and Unified Government Mayor, Mark Holland assists in the formal start of the race.
- KCK Rotary Club President, Hank Chamberlain and his granddaughters helped with traffic control.
