YANKTON - A canoe and kayak race on the Missouri National Recreational River has nearly 100 racers registered.
The inaugural Fort to Field 50 Paddle Battle will be held Saturday. The 50-mile race starts at the Fort Randall Dam and concludes at Springfield.
Organizers say competitors are coming from as far away as Mississippi and the Netherlands.
