WISCONSIN RIVER CANOE RACE
July 11 , 2015
Throughout its history, the Wisconsin River Canoe & Kayak Race has hosted some of the nation’s finest paddlers. It remains the largest, best attended canoe & kayak race in Wisconsin. If you do only one canoe or kayak race this summer, this is the one to enter!
The action gets started on Saturday evening with the “Saturday Night Special” C1 & K1 race; about 4 miles of up-stream/downstream fun starting and ending in Victoria Park, Muscoda.
Sunday is all-downstream racing ending at Victoria Riverside Park in Muscoda. Participants can choose one of three courses: the 21 mile course starts at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in Spring Green. The 15 mile course starts at Otter Creek Landing at Lone Rock. Folks in recreational canoes & kayaks or Stand Up Paddleboards start at the Pine River/Buena Vista Landing in Gotham (8-mile course).
This stretch of the Wisconsin River is known to paddlers for its beautiful scenery and numerous places to camp. The fast current, shallow water, and shifting sandbars challenge every paddler’s river reading skills and paddling technique.
