Raft races on the Trnávka have been offering for years the opportunity to see the best Czech racers. Due to the successes of the Czech racers at international races in the long-run, several crews with the title of world champions, Trnavka European champions or a medal from these championships – both in the man and woman category – have been regularly visiting the event.

Central Europe’s most difficult artificial course perfectly tests the quality of the best crews. However, a suitable placement of obstacles allows also the participation of technically less competent. In the R4 category, there are regularly more than 80 crews including more than 10 woman ones. More than 30 rafts participace in the R6 races and their numer is growing every year.
Since water to the the artifical slalom course is supplied from a local reservoire which at the same time serves as a drinking water source, races only take place here several times a year. Not even Czech crews have the chance to train on the Trnávka regularly so that the race in no way favours local rafters.

Besides one or two training weekends, the RK Stan team organises every year two races on the Trnávka. In June, slalom and sprint in the R4 category, in September the R6 European Cup including run, Trnavka slalom and sprint. Both these races are open to rafters from all around the world.

Foreign crews can borrow Colorado rafts for R4 races. This must however be agreed upon in advance. (Borrowing R4 rafts is not a standard service provided by the organisers; it concerns those foreign crews that cannot bring a raft of their own. Potential candidates should contact RK Stan organisers some time before the race and arrange the details. If the organisers cannot provide their own raft, they can mediate its renting from a hire firm). As for the R6 category, the organisers provide the rafts.
