Curious as to who is the oldest solo paddler to finish. Im 64 and finished this year but I suspect there is some 71 year old geezer out there that easily surpasses that.  Also I would like to see the solo category broken up into below 50, 50+ and 60+ as does, say, the Race Across America. It's tough to compete against someone 40 years younger.

I am not convinced, given good health and attention to fitness, that age has a lot to do with one’s performance in an endurance race like the 340.  There are so many variables—weather, river speed and the many obstacles enroute (rock, barges, sneaky boils and whirlpools, fog, those pesky hallucinations), individual strategies for hydration, sustenance, navigation, sleep, body rests, bathroom breaks, choice of boat/paddle/clothes, performance of ground crew,…you get my drift.

I am a four time veteran and this year, at age 64, I had my best solo time of just over 55 hours.  I don’t think I could have done any better at age 40.  But, as Dylan said, “Ah, but I was so much older then, / I'm younger than that now.”

My opinion, of course, but I would rather finish 6th in a field of all comers than take 2nd or 3rd in some contrived “masters” class.  I would like to hear from others.

Bill is an animal out there.  He has not peaked yet.

And I'm not sure how old Bob Maloney is, but a top 10 finish in a crowded field of men's solos is really something.

Records have been updated to include the stellar performances by the 2013 field of paddlers.  Let us know if something was missed.  Lots of new additions to the top ten division standings. Nine boats inducted into the 50-hour club, three division records set and a new course record set at 35 hours, 58 minutes!

You all continue to raise the bar and re-invent this course!

Got you on there.  Sorry for the oversight.  There are only a few in that echelon.

Scott
The Anvil Toters Chris, Brad and Daniel Colhour finished in 54:25 in 2014 in the team division. And if you want you can add Darin, Carl, and Wayne Colhour and Cathy Davis as ground crew for the this race.
Thanks for all you do for this race!

Anvil Toters ground crew chief.

I would suggest that maybe it's time for a separate sub-40 listing.  Kind of the most awesome of the awesome.

Thanks for the update. As a rookie, totally made my evening!

On the 50 hour club records, there are some 46 hr times in between the 45 hours, #24 & #25 on the list are in the wrong spot.
