Ocoee River Championships (ORC) - 3 Day Multidiscipline Whitewater Competition on the 1996 Olympic Section.

The Ocoee River Championships (ORC) bring annual whitewater competition back to Ocoee Whitewater Center, a world class Olympic venue, for the first time in almost two decades. This three-day whitewater event on August 24 - 26, 2018 will provide live music, regional vendors, and competitions including downriver racing (raft, SUP, canoe, and kayak), slalom racing, freestyle, and squirt boat categories.  ORC proceeds support the Ocoee River Basin Foundation 501c3. The ORC will be staged in the Cherokee National Forest, managed by the Ocoee Ranger District of the United States Forest Service.

The Ocoee River Basin in Eastern Tennessee has long been an outdoor mecca. This scenic area plays backdrop to many diverse people and different industries. The whitewater community brings tourism and elite whitewater enthusiasts to the area with an economic impact of $43 million a year.
