Paddlers to test mettle in Missouri River race
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A packed field of paddlers is headed to Kansas City for the annual 340-mile boat race along the Missouri River.
One hundred and fifty kayaks and canoes have entered into the third Missouri River 340. That's nearly twice as many boats than started last year.
The race starts Tuesday at Kaw Point, just south of Kansas City.
The top finishers should reach St. Charles late Thursday or early Friday. Stops are scheduled in Lexington, Waverly, Miami, Glasgow, Easley, Jefferson City, Hermann and Washington.
