Saturday, April 15, 2023

The 50th anniversary Raisin River Canoe Race is set to take place on Saturday, April 15, 2023. 

Click here to preregister. In-person registration may be available on a first-come first-served basis depending on availability, on Race Day (April 15) beginning at 9 AM at St. Andrew's Catholic School, (17283 County Rd 18, St Andrew's West).

The Raisin River Canoe Race is one of the longest canoe races in Eastern Ontario. First started in 1973, the 30km course runs from St. Andrews to Williamstown. The race is always held during the spring freshet when water levels are high and flows are favourable for paddlers. Thanks to the support from our funders and the Race Safety Committee (South Glengarry and South Stormont Fire Departments, St. John Ambulance, Amateur Radio Emergency services, OPP and OPP Auxiliaries) we are able to coordinate a successful race year after year.
