COMPETE-LAUGH-GET WET-HAVE FUN at the Ford Canoe Challenge!  This event is a River Walk tradition since 1969- come out and watch!

Race check-in is located at Gompers Park (on Market street, opposite the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center). The starting line for the race is on the river level,  below the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce (602 E Commerce St, San Antonio, TX, 78205)

Watch the celebrity course:

Online Registration: 

Three categories of registration: 

Boy & Girl Scouts  (1/2 mile course)

Corporate/Public (1/4 mile course)

Celebrity (1/4 mile course)

All registered participants may also enter, at no additional cost, a costume contest.  2015 winners were sharks.  Previous years' winners include pirates, Gilligan's Island cast, zombies and much more. Be creative. I guess this is the "laugh" portion of the event.
