Muskoka River X Expedition Paddling Race 2017
- September 16, 2017
The Muskoka 130 km Classic is the world’s longest single day expedition paddling race and is back for its fifth year. Teams paddle two rivers systems, three lakes and 20 portages for a total of 130km in less than 24 hours. The Classic is completely self-supported. That’s right, no outside assistance, no support teams and no re-supplies. Considered the toughest single day canoe race in the world.
Starting in Huntsville with the MRX Classic paddlers, Sprint Teams will paddle 80km over Stage 1 and 2 before ending their journey in Bracebridge. For those paddlers who want an MRX experience at a shorter distance, not needing to tackle the upriver-overnight Stages 3 and 4, or wanting to race shorter under-17’ C2 Rec canoes, the MRX Sprint is a great way to start your career in expedition paddle racing.
Open to Canoes, Kayaks and Standup Paddle Boards - this event is not one to miss and can be viewed via the Race Viewer.
