These accomplished Saskatoon paddlers won the mixed championship of the Triple Crown last year. See Trevor’s story about the 2016 Ausable Marathon published in the HUT! last October - click to read.


Nationals is a great way to meet and paddle with Marathon paddlers from across Canada, US and Belize. The very full two-day race schedule is subject to fine tuning for outrigger paddlers and those unable to portage. As well as Championship events there are opportunities to race in many different canoes and kayaks.

Paddlers show their commitment by signing up early.
The cut-off date for free T-shirts is the last day of July and the fee goes up July 25 but don’t wait that long. Register before June 30 to be in a draw for a Ripple FX canoe paddle embossed with the Nationals logo.

OMCKRA has partnered with host Sudbury Canoe Club (SCC) and the Aboriginal Sport and Wellness Council of Ontario (ASWCO) for the event. The provincial government committed $20,000 to run the event and leave a marathon racing program as a legacy at SCC on beautiful Ramsey Lake.
