Canoe, Kayak Challenge on tap

— Another function of the race is to introduce young people and the uninitiated to an important part of local culture, said Hai. The Challenge offers a recreational circuit for people who want to try it out, but don't want to race competitively, like families and kids.

Waterways were the highways of the Adirondacks, so residents have a historical connection to canoeing and kayaking, said Hai. The event connects people with the region's history and opens up a way to enjoy the landscape.

The race costs $20 per participant, with the money used to cover the event's expenses and purchase liability insurance for the organizers.
