The Rur is the only real white water river in North Rhine-Westphalia. The upper section above the [[Rur Dam|Rur reservoir]] (German: Rurtalsperre Schwammenauel) offers {{convert|20|km|mi}} of white water ranging from [[International Scale of River Difficulty|class]] III(+) to I. The town of Monschau is the venue for the yearly International White Water Race which was held on 17 March 2013 for the 58th time.{{cn}}
 
Paddling on the Middle Rur below the Rur Reservoir is dependent on the release of water from the Rur dam and is subject to registration with the German paddlers club DKV. For environmental protection reasons this section of the river may only be paddled between 15 July and 28 February. Despite these restrictions it is frequently visited by individual paddlers and boat rental companies.{{fact|date=May 2017}}
