The Upper Ottawa River Race is comprised of multiple races, all taking place on the mighty and historic Ottawa River.

The event features kayak, canoe, outrigger, prone, and stand-up paddling (SUP) races on the Ottawa River (13km, 4 km, or kids races).

Included with registration is a race shirt (guaranteed only for registrations received by July 15), a pile of swag (we've been told it's the best race swag-bag ever), catered dinner (guest tickets available at $10/person per meal), a shuttle to pick up your vehicle (13 km), prizes and trophies in a variety of categories, great camaraderie and a full day of fun!

We are grateful to our sponsors as this event could not run without them.
