AuSable River Canoe Marathon – Photos

Known by its legions of die-hard fans simply as “The Marathon”, this event is one of the original ultra-endurance events in North America. The Marathon is also the middle leg of the Triple Crown of Canoe Racing. New York’s General Clinton Canoe Regatta, staged Memorial Day, and Quebec’s Classique internationale de canots de la Mauricie, staged over the U.S. Labor Day weekend complete the Triple Crown circuit.

Posted by friends at la Classique internationale de canots de la Mauricie, the final stage of the Triple Crown of Canoe Racing:

"La domination a un nom Lajoie/Triebold

"Le duo sera t'il capable de répéter leur exploit de la general clinton race à Cooperstown?

"Chose certaine il va y avoir de l'action sur la rivière Ausable !"

And, in English:

"Domination has a name Lajoie / Triebold

"Will the duo be able to repeat their feat at the General Clinton Canoe Regatta?

"Something is certain, there will be action on the AuSable River!
