Get your paddles ready for a fun event on the beautiful waters of the St. Lawrence River! The Township of Front of Yonge is hosting a Paddle Poker Run for people of all ages and abilities on Saturday September 18th 2021 at Brown’s Bay.

The Paddle Poker Run is an event that will encourage people to get outside to celebrate and enjoy the St. Lawrence River.

Each paddler will follow a route beginning at Brown’s Bay that includes at least five stops or check points where they will draw a playing card. After the paddle, there will be prizes for the best poker hand and a fun souvenir for each registrant. There will be routes set up for beginners and for experienced paddlers ranging from 5km to 10km. Entry is only $10 per person or $25 for a family!
