Held annually on the Monday of Labor Day Weekend, the Dick Reese Kipona Canoe Races are the only canoe races of their kind, a true measure of paddling skill with lots of fun thrown in as well! This is a true “citizen’s race” where everyone has a chance to participate, whether you are a regular paddler or not.

All canoe races are run in identical 17-foot touring canoes, using straight-shaft paddles. Canoes, paddles, and life-jackets are provided by the Canoe Club of Greater Harrisburg. Races are short "sprints" of 400 to 600 yards that involve a buoy turn. There are 12 different race classes for different ages and abilities of paddlers, from novices to experts, solo, tandem, and a four person war canoe. Proceeds benefit a local chapter of the Sierra Club Foundation's Inspiring Connections Outdoors program.
