OSCODA – This year’s Klondike Canoe Challenge – typically the first Michigan Canoe Racing Association of the year – may be canceled, but the annual 5K/10K is still on, according to organizers. 

Due to circumstances beyond organizers the main race had to be canceled, but the foot race taking place on Sunday, April 11, will be open to those who would like to walk or run in the event.

Organizers said the money raised at the event will be used to help fund the Consumers Energy AuSable River International Canoe Marathon.

Cost of entry is $10 per person. Events start at 1 p.m. and social distancing regulations will be enforced. Awards certificates will be available on the Klondike Challenge webpage of the AuSable River Canoe Marathon website in the days following the event (see link below.
