59th Annual Des Plaines River Canoe and Kayak Marathon

Sunday May 22, 2016

Times: Sunday: 8am

This is the second oldest continual canoe race in the United States. The race is 18½ miles on the beautiful and historic Des Plaines River. There are numerous classes to accommodate people of all ages and levels, with a new 5.25 mile Minithon, starts at the Potawatomie Woods in Wheeling, option possible for non-competitors seeking a shorter course that ends at the customary Finish Line. Note that while, as in the past, Marathon paddlers may still take out at the halfway point at Rivershire Park in Lincolnshire, you must now arrange your own car shuttle to or from this site! Everyone is welcome to participate. Registration ends May 14th. Visit the website for complete information.
