Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race

April 1st - Two Weeks To Go!


In an effort to "liven things up" at the finish line with "a fun obstacle course", city engineers have installed circular spillways along the final stretch of the Kenduskeag.

Paddlers who are sucked into the vortices will be provided with transportation from Searsport after the race.


BDN Special Insert Plus T-Shirt Preview!


The Kountdown to the Kenduskeag kontinues! (Sorry about that.)

Just a friendly reminder that the deadline for preregistration is next Friday (April 15) at 1pm.
So if you haven't preregistered for the race, go here.

The Bangor Daily News put together a special insert in today's print edition. It features photos and race history including the origins of this 50 year-old tradition. (If you missed out on today's print edition the insert will also be available at the race.)

Inside this featurette you'll find a sneak peek at the 2016 canoe race T-shirt, designed by
