YEAR 3 IN PETAWAWA! SUFC is proud to partner with the towns of Pembroke and Petawawa and the Upper Ottawa River Race and Paddle Festival, a three-day event celebrating active outdoor lifestyles and the Ottawa River. The festival features the Reel Paddling Film Festival on Friday August 5th, a day of races and festivities on Saturday August 6th and wraps up on Sunday August 7th with the third installment of SUFC.
Petawawa is at the upper end of the Ottawa River system and just two short hours away from Ottawa. Paddlers will be able to choose from a few distances, depending on their ability and ambition. Leaders will provide a group pace and support boats will provide backup in the event any stragglers need a lift. After paddlers reach their turnaround they return to the event starting point for a well-deserved lunch. The afternoon includes prize draws, board demos, time to meet our sponsors and time spent relaxing by the water.
