Welcome to the official home of 19th 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 2014 itinerary and consider joining us for just a day or two. Hopefully, we’ll see you on the water!

2015 Dates & Hotel Information!

January 18th, 2015

Photo submitted by John Tipton It was great to see everyone at the Nashville Boat Show, an event we always look forward to midway through winter. It’s like a mini-reunion for many of the Tennessee River 600 participants and this year didn’t disappoint, with friends coming in from several different states to catch up and check out some new skis.  The only drawback to meeting in January is that we can’t get out on the water and ride! At least we’ll be able to look forward to July 26 through August 1, 2015, the dates for the 19th Annual Tennessee River 600!

The gears for 2015 are turning and we have updated the hotel information as well, and within the next few weeks we’ll have the registration forms ready for you to send in. We’re also beginning work on the itinerary so keep an eye out for that as we’ll make it available as soon as it’s ready.

So until the weather warms up and we can wake from this winter slumber keep reminding yourself that July is just around the corner and will be here before you know it!

Another Successful Year!

August 31st, 2014

Photo submitted by Laura Goodman Can you believe that the summer is almost over?! We wish we could all meet back in Knoxville and do it all over again! The water was perfect for all but one day (who ordered all of that wind on Sunday any way?!) and the temperatures were cool all week! It was definitely a rarity for such nice weather at the end of July in Tennessee. We hope we get to experience that again in 2015.

We’ve received almost 1,000 pictures from the week and we’ve posted them in our photo gallery. Thank you to all that have sent us your pictures! We love looking through them and remembering all of the times we had and it just makes us look forward to 2015 that much more!

The last bit if news we wanted to share with you is that $15,635 was raised for the Children’s Miracle Network and TWRA this year, and there might be another check or two waiting to be turned in! We couldn’t be more proud of each and every one of our participants this year that helped us donate! You are truly an amazing bunch of people!

We’re already working on the 2015 event, and as soon as we get the hotels locked in we’ll announce the dates! Stay safe and enjoy the water for as long as you can because it won’t be long and the leaves will start changing color and the temperatures will start cooling down and the riding season will be over.

Packed & Ready To Ride!

July 22nd, 2014

Photo submitted by Jason Noble Can you believe that we have just a few short days before we gather in Knoxville?! Sometimes it feels like it would never get here while other times it feels like it flew by! We’re still busy packing the things that we’ll be bringing with us to the Marriott Hotel in Knoxville, along with everything else we’ll need for the week! And we put the finishing touches to the itinerary so now you all know what the schedule looks like. Please remember that times and events are subject to change, so for all of the new participants we have joining us this year we ask you to please be flexible.

We also want to remind everyone that we will be posting to our Facebook and Twitter pages throughout our trip so that friends and family from all over the world can see the fun we’re having! Please feel free to tag us in your photos that you share as well! If you would like to submit your pictures that you take throughout the week for our photo gallery please contact Jason so that he can get a copy of them.

We hope that everyone has safe travels to Knoxville (or where ever you plan on joining us) and we will see you all on Saturday! Keep your fingers crossed for good weather and get ready to have some fun!!!
