A canoe and kayak race on the Red River in Fargo-Moorhead on June 11, 2018.

This year there will be 3 flag races!  Choose your distance: 1.5, 3.5 or 6 miles.  Participants will paddle up river to a designated turnaround point, grab a prize and return down river to the finish.

All races begin and end at the south boat ramp at Dike East (100 2nd St. S. in Fargo).  The first half of each race is upstream.

Family and friends can bike/run/walk along the entire course on the Fargo Park District’s trail system to watch their paddlers.
