Cardboard boat races in Manchester

Posted: Updated:

It's not the typical boat race you usually see.

The boats in this race are all made out of cardboard. 

It's the First Annual River Runner Regatta and Cardboard Boat Races.

17 teams took part in the new event, which took place at the Manchester White Water Park.

Some cardboard boats got further than others. 

"We wanted to really capture the location and become part of this White Water Park, so one of our bartenders had a fantastic idea of coming up with this cardboard boat race and we kinda ran with it and we're really pleased with how it turned out," said co-founder of the boat race, Chad Sands.

The event was hosted by the Franklin Street Brewing Company.
