Kanu Rennen

November 5, 2016 @ 1:00 pm

These races are designed for both the young and old, experienced and new paddlers. Some races will be intense and competitive, while others will be crazy fun. Bring the entire family, scout troop or paddling club and your recreational style canoe (ABS, aluminum etc..No carbon and kevlar. No kayaks. Must use single blade paddle.)  to join us for an afternoon of fun short canoe races.

If we need to postpone or move the race due to the weather we will post on our home page 24 hours in advance if the race location or date will be changed.  Please check if the weather is questionable.

If you need a canoe for the race Paddle With Style will be providing a very limited supply to use for the races, free of charge.  They will be available on race day as a first come, first serve basis.  You may also contact TG Canoe & Kayak out of San Marcos to rent a canoe: 512-353-3946.
