KANSAS CITY, MO (2010-08-27) A Texas team might have won the annual canoe and kayak race on the Missouri River, but 5 teams from Northwest Missouri are vowing to finish.
The five teams are from Albany complete with their chase vehicles finishing the final leg of the "M-R 340" which features paddlers rowing from Kansas City to St. Charles with a deadline of 88 hours. Most left Kansas City Monday morning. Red Allen of Labany and his partner Mike Girantano are experiencing their first year at the race. Allen says paddling the Missouri creates memories, but not plans for next year. A female tandem team from Albany is one of just 5 such teams at the MR340 this year.
