The 2013 Second Annual Bayou Adventure Race is a multi-disciplinary undertaking. It consists of three components with three different itineraries. The first is a 5K run alongside banks of Buffalo Bayou from Dairy Ashford to SH-6. There, the participants will jump into kayaks (or canues) and paddle down the watercourse back to Dairy Ashford. The third component of the race will be a 10K or 15K dirt bike ride on the Terry Hershey Trail System (also called Buffalo Bayou Bike Trail)
Participants must bring their own mountain bike, helmet, life-vest, and water bottle; rental kayaks are available with registration. For additional information see the web site of the Bayou Preservation Association’s Bayou Adventure Race web page

Buffalo Bayou at the flow control gate - all the Feb 16 activity will be downstream, 
but the water level seems just right for boating if its stays that way
