Raisin River Canoe Race

The Raisin River Canoe Race is one of the longest canoe races in Eastern Ontario. First started in 1973, the 30km course runs from St. Andrews to Williamstown. The race is always held during the spring freshet when water levels are high and flows are favourable for paddlers.

The race attracts hundreds of participants, who paddle through a 30-kilometre racecourse from St. Andrew’s West in South Stormont to Williamstown in South Glengarry while being cheered on by enthusiastic shoreline supporters.

Contestants get a front-row seat to the natural beauty of the Raisin River and surrounding landscape, as the river’s racecourse meanders through agricultural lands, villages, rapids, and forests.
