The Whitewater River Canoe Races

From 1963 to 1990, the Whitewater River and Whitewater River Canal were home to annual canoe races. These races attracted many participants, from recreational paddlers to Olympians, including Roland Muhlen and Greg Barton. After a 16 year break, the races were started again in 2006 and have been going strong ever since.

Currently the canoe races are part of Brookville Canoeofet. There are 3 different categories of races at the festival. There are competitive championship races, recreational races, and a biathlon where racers canoe and run.
