08/05 - 8th Annual West Grand Lake Race

The race includes options for competitive paddlers or relaxed family outings – including courses of 12, 6, or 4 miles. All three courses start and finish in the village of Grand Lake Stream and are round trips around islands in West Grand Lake – paddlers will enjoy seeing some of the undeveloped shoreline of the land trust’s 33,708-acre Farm Cove Community Forest, and their current conservation effort, the West Grand Lake Community Forest project on the east shore of the lake.


Registration is from 9:30 to 10:30 am at the boat landing at the west side of the Grand Lake Stream dam on Shaw Street in Grand Lake Stream.

Fees are $25 or $15 for ages 12 and under, and include registration, t-shirts, snacks, and a cookout.

12-mile: 1:46:13, by the War Canoe paddled by Chip Loring, Mark Ranco, Chris Francis, and Dan Jones, in 2010
6-mile: 59:01, by Robert Grosse, K-1, in 2011
4-mile: 43:12, by Mark Berry & Asa Berry in a K-2, in 2011.
