Red River Paddle Challenge
September 23 - September 24
This September the Red River Paddle Challenge celebrates it’s fifth year! This year we will be offering two races for paddlers to choose from each with a different distance! We welcome all types of paddling craft, including canoes, kayaks, stand up paddleboards, outrigger canoes, surfskis, dragon boats, etc. Basically our motto is if you can paddle it you can race it!
The Red River Paddle Challenge (RRPC) is a 44 kilometer (~27 miles) long distance paddling race on the Red River beginning in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and ending down river in Lockport, Manitoba.
The Red River 100 (RR100) is a 100 kilometer (~62 miles) two-day ultra distance paddling race where participants paddle from Ste Agathe, Manitoba to Winnipeg on day one and then on day two participants join in with the Red River Paddle Challenge paddlers and paddle to Lockport.
RR100 participants are ranked within the RR100 (combined time from both days) and also the RRPC, so essentially competing in two races over the weekend! Prizes are awarded for both races.
Complete details including registration for both race options are available on our website!
