Mid-American Canoe & Kayak Race is Back!

Sunday, June 2, 9am – 2pm

Be part of history when the Mid-Am celebrates its 58th running. Experience the excitement of paddling the scenic Fox River while enjoying this classic tradition that dates back to the 1960s. Paddlers of all ages and abilities are welcome. Two race lengths are offered with start lines in St. Charles (10 miles) and Batavia (6 miles) both finishing with a post-race lunch party and awards ceremony at Prisco Community Center/McCullough Park – 150 W. Ilinois Ave. in Aurora. Pre-race pickup will also be available at the Prisco Community Center on Saturday, June 1 from 8 a.m. to noon.

With 20 different divisions – 11 for canoes, 8 for kayaks and an open (non-competitive) division – there’s a fit for everybody, and awards to the top three boats in every division.
