44th Annual Classic Overview

The 44th Annual Cameron County Canoe and Kayak Classic is scheduled for Saturday, April 7, 2018. The Committee is very hopeful for good water conditions. The overall theme of the 2018 event is "?" Numerous volunteer organizations will be on hand offering assistance helping to provide a safe and quality event. A limited supply of kayaks and recreational canoes will be available for a rental fee. To reserve a canoe or kayak, you must call or email me at the number / address indicated above no later than one week prior to race day!

The 2018 race awards will be handmade paddle plaques which will be given to participants over a wide array of classes. Emporium Hardwoods has donated the cherry wood. Mr Donald Benedict and his son Paul planed, traced, cut and sanded the plaques.  The 2018 design was done by Art and Ink. Total Engraving of Smethport, PA laser-etched them, and Cool's Auto Repair will finish them. The awards ceremony will be held at the Emporium Firehall along with a pasta dinner to be prepared by the Emporium Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary.

On behalf of the Cameron County Canoe and Kayak Classic Committee, I would like to thank in advance all of this year's race sponsors, volunteers & organizations and anyone who helps to make the 44th edition of the Cameron County Canoe and Kayak Classic the best yet. I hope to see many new and former participants and spectators at this year's event. If you have any questions or would like more information, please call me at (814) 546-2011, email me at, or visit the event website at Sincerely, Randy Bailey - Event Organizer
