KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - About 600 paddlers are headed east down the Missouri River to St. Charles for the start of the Missouri 340 race.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1LPBPwl) the race started early Tuesday in Kansas City, Kansas. The race supports water preservation.

The racers have 88 hours to finish the 340 miles from Kaw Point in Kansas City, Kansas, to St. Charles, Missouri, outside St. Louis.

Organizers say they expect only about two-thirds of the paddlers to finish. They’ll be battling high temperatures in the 90s.
