Welcome to the official home of 18th Annual Tennessee River 600!

Are you an avid Personal Watercraft (PWC) rider, or do you know someone who is? If you are interested in spending eight days cruising 600 miles on the Tennessee River and raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, then this is the place for you!

To find out what the Tennessee River 600 is really all about (and no, it is not a race), check out our About Us page. If you don’t have enough time in your schedule to join us for the entire trip, check out our 2013 itinerary (we will have our 2014 itinerary available when it’s ready) and consider joining us for just a day or two. Hopefully, we’ll see you on the water!

Where’s Spring?

March 17th, 2014

It sure has been a long, cold winter and it seems like it just won’t let go! But the good news is that Spring will be here soon, and it can’t get here fast enough! We can only think of one or two people that we know of that enjoys all of the snow that’s fallen this year but they don’t live here in Tennessee! Here, we’re ready for the flowers to begin blooming and the grass to turn green signifying the beginning of another great personal watercraft riding season is on it’s way!

We’ll be staying at the same locations that we stayed at last year as we heard a lot of positive feedback from last years participants. One bit of information that want to let you know is that the hotel in Guntersville, AL, is now known as the Wyndham Garden Lake Guntersville, so hopefully there won’t be any confusion if you call to make your reservations and don’t recognize the name. It’s still the same great hotel with the same great staff that has made us feel at home for the past several years! Continue reading “Where’s Spring?”

Let’s Do It Again!

January 24th, 2014

Hey everyone! We know, it’s been way too long since you’ve heard from us but we’re still here and we’re going to ride again in 2014!!! We’re busy making plans for July 27th through August 2nd, so mark your calendars and stay tuned as we’ll have information about this year’s event available as soon as we can.

Photo submitted by Jason Noble We were looking back at last year’s event and while there were some unbelievable memories from the week, there’s one that sticks out most in our minds, and that is everyone raised a total of $12,470 for the The Children’s Hospital, Birmingham, AL; and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency!! Once again, you raised more money than the previous year!! And that brings the total that you’ve raised in 17 years to $204,323!! You never cease to amaze us and we couldn’t be more proud of you!! We’re looking forward to seeing what will be raised this year!

We’ll be in touch again soon, but until then know that we’re busy doing what we do so that we can ride together in July! Think warm and we’ll see you on the water!

Most importantly, we hope that you all have safe travels to Knoxville and that you’re ready for a week of great fun! We’ve placed the order for good weather but you know how reliable shipping can be!
