ICF Marathon Classic Series: Regata Internacional Del Rio Negro (Argentina) 0The Regata Internacional Del Rio Negro is a stage race run on the Black River which crosses the entire province of Rio Negro in northern Patagonia. There are 6 stages broken into 2-day blocks with a rest day after every 2 days. Paddlers who thrive in the Rio Negro will be comfortable racing in the heat, asserting themselves in mass starts, handling large river eddies and spending the first hour of each day doing sprints on and off as the front pack of 20-30 paddlers thins itself down to the lead group and chasers behind.
