Redmond-Kenmore Race

  • This 20 km race starts in Redmond’s Luke McRedmond Park, and passes through Woodinville, Bothell and Kenmore, finishing on Lake Washington at Kenmore’s Log Boom Park.  It’s a one-way race, so there will be a shuttle.
  • All types of paddling craft are welcome – canoes, kayaks, and SUPs of all conceivable design – you just need to be able to finish the 20 km in under 6 hours.
  • The course winds along the Sammamish River valley, with one small riffly section of river and a couple of shallow spots to watch out for. The last kilometer is across the north end of Lake Washington.
  • Entry fee $35 per person.
