AO the OX

Enjoy head-to-head, high intensity short course racing in which pairs of teams face off against each other in a double-elimination format. Each team races at least twice per event. First round pairs are randomly drawn. Race One is for seeding. Race Two starts the elimination. Teams keep progressing to the next round as long as they keep winning. The last winning team is the winner. Canoe classes are a “ONE DESIGN” event, meaning all teams will paddle a standardized watercraft provided by race management. Participate in as many events as you are eligible. Awards will be presented at Algonquin Outfitters THE OX banquet on Saturday evening. CASH PRIZE for winners of each event/subcategory, being an equal share of the total available cash prize. Medals and Certificates for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams

Battle of the Paddle Registration Limits:

Battle of the paddle has a double elimination format, and therefore has specific limits on the number of teams that can enter each of the categories. In addition due to time constraints, we can only offer entry for a total of 48 teams. We are starting with a limit of 4 teams per category. As we see how each category fills up, we will increase limits where possible. Wait lists will be enabled as categories fill up
