KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – The Missouri River race that was set to take place this week has been pushed back due to high water.

Organizers made the announcement this morning after determining that rain-fueled flooding would make the race unsafe for participants of the annual MR340.

The 340-mile long race, which starts in Kansas City and finishes in St. Charles, will now be held August 12-15.

The race was also delayed by flooding three years ago.
