Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race

The 2021 Race Is On! (With Changes)

Permalink















Great news for paddlers this spring! A downsized 54th Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race will be held on Saturday, April 17th with important new rules and regulations. Here are some highlights:

- The race will be limited in scope to 150 total boats, and seven race classes.

- Registration is $35 per person, and the registration deadline is Thursday, April 8.

- Paddlers must pick up their stickers, race bibs, etc. at the Bangor Parks and Recreation office; race packets will NOT be handed out at the race.

- Starting times will be staggered by class, from 8:30am to 10:00am.

- All paddlers must wear masks/face coverings until they are on the stream.

- As the start times of the race are staggered, paddlers can not meet at the starting point in Kenduskeag until 20 minutes before their designated start time (again, by class).

- There will not be a warming tent at the finish line this year.

- Six Mile Falls will be closed to the public during the race (no gathering of spectators). For spectators watching the race at other points along the stream, the use of masks and social distancing are advised.

Woo-hoo! Spring is just around the corner and you can now preregister for the 49th Annual Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race, to be held on April 18th, 2015.

Download the 2015 race registration form here.

You may also register online with Bangor Parks & Recreation (please note that you'll still have to download and return a signed registration form).

Last but not least, Bangor Parks & Recreation released this canoe race information flyer last month for anyone who needs some basic info.

Stay in touch for further race news and updates. By the way, the Bangor area has seen a decent amount of snowfall this winter (an understatement). My guess is the water could be "sporty" on race day. Should be fun!

Aye, it's a bit early this year. This photo was taken about twenty minutes ago (3/9/12) in downtown Bangor.

In two weeks the 12th Annual Paddle Smart Symposium will kick off at the Bangor Boat Show (Bangor Civic Auditorium, March 24th & 25th).

And in three weeks? The first whitewater race of the season, the St. George River Race.

More to come....
