In the ’70s and early 80’s, there was an event….an event that drew thousands to the shores of the Trent River to watch a spectacle like no other. Hundreds of participants built homemade rafts and raced in The Great Trent River Raft Race.
2018 saw the successful return of the race. The great news is that it is back AGAIN! Grab your kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddle boards....or grab a bunch of friends and show off your engineering skills by building a paddle raft or a pedal raft. Details are being added daily to our website www.thegreattrentriverraftrace.com.
Don't be left standing on the shore. Design It-Build It-Race It! Will yours float?
