Ford Canoe Challenge

Date: August 6, 2016   Time: 7:00AM - 11:00AM

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

This is the only time canoeing is allowed on the downtown portion of the River Walk.  Check that off your bucket list. REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JULY 31.

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. Celebrity category is by invitation only. Unless you are a Spurs player- you can just show-up!)

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.
