Curley Memorial Race – Cancelled

Official letter from Curley Memorial Race

We truly had a hard time making this decision, but after much discussion the Curley Committee has decided to cancel the 2020 race. We are hoping to be able to provide some activities in town that weekend, but due to restrictions on Consumers property and other factors out of our control we decided the best option was to cancel the race. Stay tuned we will be updating you as soon as we have more information.

Sincerely,
The Curley Committee

Huron River Canoe Race has been cancelled for 2020

Huron River Canoe Race has been cancelled for 2020
From Race Director… Unfortunately I have to cancel the Huron River Canoe Challenge for 2020 due to the pandemic. I had hoped that the parks could re-open in time and allow me obtain the necessary event permits from the city. However, the city concluded that the park shelters and open space rentals shall remain closed through the June 20 weekend.
Looking forward to the next edition of the Huron River Challenge in 2021.

Roscommon and Muskegon Race Update

Yesterday the MDNR contacted Sean Brabant letting him know that they were issuing permits for the Roscommon Canoe Classic (June 6 – 7) and the Muskegon River Throw Down (June 27 – 28).  Just two weeks ago they communicated there would be no marine permits in 2020, so needless to say we were surprised.  The races have to follow the social distancing recommendations that they have worked out with the MDNR. These are noted on the race information pages.

We will still have the virtual Roscommon Race, but people can only get prizes in the virtual or live race – you can’t double dip.  We will continue to have two virtual races a month, so people can participate without traveling if they so choose.
