2015 Race Registration Now Open!




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!

College Students: Compete For Your School!

(originally posted 3/27/06)


Although it is missing from the 2006 race registration form, there's a new College Division for the 2006 Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race (and this new College Division is applicable to all MaCKRO points races throughout this season.)

College students may compete on behalf of their respective schools for the ultimate prize: The College Cup.

You must be a member of MaCKRO (Maine Canoe & Kayak Racing Association) to compete in the College Division. There are special membership group rates available for colleges. Contact MaCKRO for more information.

Canoe race organizer Matt Dingle relayed this message:

"Only one, Unity College, has contacted me about their club joining. They did make some comment about the other colleges around here not knowing how to paddle, having buggy whip arms and that they would probably float down the stream backwards, puking in fear. But the message wasn't real clear."

And you won't have to deal with the stress of waiting in line.
