Canoe The Nonquon

Established in 1969 it is the longest running race in Ontario.  All funds raised benefit the Scugog Shores Museums. For the first few kilometers on the Nonquon there are many tight bends to practice your rudder turns. There are also some dead-end channels along the river section — when in doubt keep right! There are no portages but you may have to push over one or two beaver dams. There is 12 km of river paddling followed by an 8 km sprint along the shores of Lake Scugog to the finish line. This is a well attended race with a long-standing history in the community.

12 & 20km: Marathon C1 and C2. Various Recreational boats; Canoe, SUP and Kayak.
