The Great Brant Lake

Canoe Race

5.5 miles of Adirondack Paddling

Update: 2020 Canoe Race Cancelled

Due to considerations regarding COVID-19 we have decided to cancel the 2019 Brant Lake Canoe Race. We remain committed to the future of this event and plan on resuming in the summer of 2021. We view public health and safety as an important issue and after reviewing state and federal health guidelines we have determined that a large group event such as the canoe race creates unnecessary risk in the current Covid-19 epidemic setting.


Showcasing paddling opportunities as a recreational resource in North Warren is an important part of our mission. In lieu of the canoe race we hope to hold a small series of community paddling nights toward the end of the summer and into the early fall. These events will be an opportunity to experience some of the lakes and rivers that provide opportunities in North Warren and a chance to connect with the local paddling community.  Safety and health guidelines will be strictly followed. Check back at and on our facebook page for updates in the coming weeks


We would also like to say another thank you to all of our 2019 supporters for making last year’s race happen. Please visit our sponsor page here.


Thank you for your continued support and understanding.  We’ll see you on the water,




Matt Strickland
