Canoeing

There are two organizations which support marathon canoe and kayak racing in the United States. The United States Canoe Association holds an annual national championship and supports hundreds of local marathon races through its regional affiliates. The United States Canoe and Kayak Team supports and holds trials for the U.S. Marathon Canoe/Kayak Team.

Although the USCA holds the National Marathon Kayak and Canoe Championship each year, three other marathon races are often cited as the "triple crown" of marathon canoe racing. Those races are:
-- The General Clinton Regatta in Bainbridge, NY
-- The Au Sable Canoe Marathon in Grayling, MI
-- La Classique International in Shawigan, Quebec, CANADA
Each of these three races have their own format and traditions, they all offer a challenge for the serious canoe racer.
