2021 Raisin River Canoe Race Cancelled

February 19, 2021

Unfortunately, the RRCA has cancelled the Raisin River Canoe Race for a second year in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ⁣⁣

The Raisin River Canoe Race is one of the longest canoe races in Eastern Ontario. First started in 1973, the race runs from St. Andrews to Williamstown. The race is always held in April when water levels are high.⁣

The event typically sees 350 paddlers every year cheered on by groups of spectators along the 30 km course.  For everyone's safety and following the current COVID-19 public health measures in place, the difficult decision was made to cancel the event this year.⁣

The RRCA looks forward to hosting the Race safely in 2022!
