  • Thames River Classic

    Thames River Classic

    09:00 -12:00
    April 4, 2020

    This race is traditionally the OMCKRA kick off for the new season and features a very technical downstream and back course with lots of twists and turns. The race will take under two hours, then lunch and everybody wins a jar of jam. Racers should expect cold water conditions and should have moving water experience for recreational or pro classes.

    If the water is low, use of your toughest paddles and boats is advisable. The start and finish is at the Pemberton Street Bridge in Ingersoll, the intersection of Pemberton Street and Wilson Street. Park on the north side of the river. To get there, take the Hwy 19 exit from 401 and proceed north. Bear right at the Petro Canada Station. You will be on Harris Street, which becomes Pemberton Street.

    12 km for Pro C2
    10 km for Stock C2 & Kayaks
    Registration is from 9-9:45am.
    Race start at 10:00 am.

  • Upper Jock River Race

    Upper Jock River Race

    09:00 -15:00
    April 11, 2020

    The Upper Jock River Canoe Race is a fun and interesting 12+ kilometer canoe race run each April. The race has a long history dating back to 1971 when it was a down-river whitewater course run on the Lower Jock River. The current course on the Upper Jock is far tamer and many families and recreational paddlers use it as a first opportunity to get out on the water. The course runs though the beautiful Richmond fen which is a highly significant Ontario wet land. Most of the course is quite shallow and there are several swifts or Class I rapids towards the end of the race, depending on the water level. There are generally no portages however there are usually some constricted areas in the fen where canoe traffic can bunch up. Current is a factor the entire distance so the end comes quickly but not too soon for some that are making it their season opener.

    12.6 km: Racing C1 & C2, Open 17′, Recreational canoes & kayaks

    Richmond Ontario (20 minutes south west of Ottawa). The race starts 12km west of Richmond at the Munster Road bridge. Organizers provide a shuttle service back to the start line.
    Registration in advance or on race day. Race start at 12:00 pm.
