Klondike Challenge Canoe Race and Klondike Run/Walk 5K

April 1, 2023 - April 2, 2023

The Klondike Challenge 5K Run/Walk & 10K Run is a Fundraiser for the AuSable River Canoe Marathon. The Klondike marks the “Season Kickoff” for the Michigan Canoe Racing season, and serves as a friendly, spirited sprint event before the MCRA’s Annual Spring Membership Meeting.  Paddlers and race fans use the event to catch-up with race friends after a long winter offseason, and to get a sneak peek at the racers for the upcoming season (or to see who has been training during the winter!).  Originally a race held in late January or February, it is now held annually in late winter or early spring.  In recent years, the Klondike Challenge has become an AuSable River Canoe Marathon fundraising event, incorporating a 5K/10K Run/Walk into the weekend’s festivities.  The event is organized by the AuSable River International Canoe Marathon Committee, and hosted in conjunction with the Michigan Canoe Racing Association.  Paddlers and runners of all ages and talent levels are welcome to enter.
