SEPT 22-23 The Rock Falls River Chase will make waves again this year on the Rock River from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept 22 & 23 at Seward Park in Rock Falls. Food and kids' activities available. Not for the faint of heart The Illinois Marine Racing Club conducts the races that are sanctioned by the American Power Boat Association. The sport is not for the faint of heart. The boats are small – about 125 pounds – and they hit speeds of up to 80 mph while the driver crouches, barely over the water with competitors only inches away. Racers use two basic types of boats: runabouts and hydroplanes. They compete in several categories according to distinctions based on age, boat weight, and motor type. The race course on the Rock River will be about a half-mile. Admission is free.

Admission: Free Admission
