Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race

Race Update: Change To Finish Line













*** Updated race information courtesy of Bangor Parks and Recreation ***

Due to high tide and the inability for boats to safely go under either of the last 2 bridges near the finish line in downtown Bangor, we have had to make a few changes.

1) NEW FINISH LINE – Immediately after Shopping Cart
2) After mandatory portage at Maxfield Dam, put your craft back in and run Shopping Cart
3) There will be a LARGE finish line sign on Stream Right
4) TAKE OUT IMMEDIATELY AFTER FINISH LINE ON STREAM RIGHT
5) Parking lot will be closed to leave your boats
6) WARMING TENT, CHILI AND CHOWDER, RESULT BOARD AND AWARDS WILL STILL BE HELD AT THE USUAL SPOT AT GOMEZ PARK
7) There will be a bus for ALL racers running from finish line area to Gomez Park starting at 11:00 am
8) Busses will also be running from Gomez Park back to Kenduskeag for racers through the day.

2014 Kenduskeag Shortened; Ends At Flour Mill

From the Twitter page of Bangor Dept. of Parks & Recreation:



Incoming tides and difficulties with bridges are cited as the reason for the course change.

The Flour Mill is the first mandatory portage racers encounter on the Kenduskeag (not far from
the I-95 overpass). Here is an overview map.

Update: Release from Bangor Dept. of Parks & Recreation:

ATTENTION
Kenduskeag Canoe Race Participants:
- The finish line has been moved to Valley Ave. Park at the Flour Mill portage due to the high tides which will make the bridges downtown impossible to pass under.
- MUST take out immediately after the Finish Line
- Food tent, heating tent and transportation back to Kenduskeag will all be at Valley Ave. Park
Thank you and have a fun and safe race!
