Horicon, NY – The North Warren Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce the third annual Great Brant Lake Canoe Race is set for Saturday, August 13 at 9:30 a.m. The race is open to canoes, kayaks, and SUPs with categories for each.
The 6 mile race will begin at the north end of the lake and take paddlers down the length of Brant Lake’s picturesque shores and into a channel, finishing on the town beach on the Mill Pond in Horicon, NY.
There will be an award ceremony at 12:30 p.m. after the finish at the Horicon Community Center. This year, organizers are working to add events after the race to give paddlers and spectators more opportunities to get on the water, and to provide an access to paddlesports for newcomers to the activity.
The event will feature live music, food, a kids’ race, canoe demos, instructional clinics, and several not-for profit and other organizations joining in to engage and educate participants and spectators.
