    Lamprey River Canoe Race

    With Spring coming into full force, it’s time to go out and have some fun at the 34th Annual Lamprey River Canoe Race on April 30th, 2011.

    Dust off those canoes and kayaks and come see what the lamprey river has to offer for scenic views and family fun.

    The competitive race begins at Mary Blair Park in Epping, NH just of of Rt. 27 at 9:30am registration begins at 8:00am and the course is approximately 7.3 miles long and ends at the Rt. 87 bridge. There are several event classes, which include men’s solo, women’s solo, 2-3 person, and a new category this year is the high-schooler’s. And prizes will be awarded to the entrants finishing in first, second and third place in their divisions.

    The non-competitive race begins in the afternoon race also begins at Mary Blair Park at 1:00pm. Registration begins at noon. The course is approximately 3 miles and ends behind Town Hall.  Certificates of Completion will be awarded to all entrants.

    Also added this year is a cook-out luncheon available after the morning race (for a small fee), during the awards ceremony at Mary Folsom Blair Park.

    The events are held rain or shine and it goes without saying that many of the competitors get very wet during their trip down the Lamprey.

    If you think you’d like to take part in this year’s Lamprey River Canoe Race, you should either download the registration form at http://www.e-clubhouse.org/sites/eppingnh/ and click on Official Canoe Race Form or visit the Epping Town Hall for a copy. Cost to register is $15 per person the day of the race or $10 to pre-register. The race is not suitable for all ages.

    This year the Epping Lions club is proud to be hosting this annual race. And our goal is to have some fun, show off our scenic river and raise some money for Epping Lions Club, who in turn, helps local residents.
