Run of the Charles
Join hundreds of kayak and paddleboard enthusiasts from U.S. and Canada, ages 12 and up, and watch them (or join them) compete in a variety of races, including a 24-mile relay race, and 19-, 9-, and 6-mile races.
Have a blast paddling on the Charles River, with races starting in Dedham, Needham, Newton, and Brighton. All races will finish at DCR’s Artesani Park on Soldiers Field Road in Brighton, where race fans and families will gather to enjoy a day of music, refreshments, exhibits, raffle drawings, picnics, and awards at the free Finish Line Festival.
