5.5 miles of Adirondack Paddling


The Great Brant Lake Canoe Race 2021!

We are excited to be back for 2021.  It’s been a long two years since the 2019 revival of the Great Brant Lake Canoe Race and we are stoked to be hosting the event again this summer. While we’re very excited, we will proceed cautiously and adhere to all health and safety guidelines outlined by New York State and Warren County to ensure a  successful race.


There will be a couple of other changes for 2021 outlined below. As we get closer to race day we will post new information on this page:




General Registration will be limited to 110 paddlers for 2021. 

Packet pickup and registration will be held from 5:30 to 7PM at the Hub on 8/6 and from 7:30 am to 9:00am on 8/7. The Race begins at 9:30.


We will be accepting registrations in person as long as there is room in the race. 

Race Day Parking and Shuttles


Camp Read will be running a shuttle from the parking/finish area at The Hub in Brant Lake to the start line for paddlers. Once paddlers drop boats off they can park and catch a ride back to the start. Masks are required in the shuttle.

Paddler parking will be located at The Hub. There is additional parking located across the Mill Pond at the  community center. Signs will direct you there as you pull in.
