Athletes from 29 countries gathered in Oklahoma City to compete in the 2014 ICF Canoe Marathon World and Pan Am Championships September 25-28, 2014. This was the first world championship event hosted on the Oklahoma River and was certainly an exciting one!  Opening ceremonies were held September 25 with the parade of nations, remarks by local dignitaries and international racing officials, and rousing entertainment. Racing was held September 26-28 with athletes battling for world championship titles. Just prior to the World Championships, the Oklahoma River hosted the Masters World Cup, September 24-25 [more].

About Canoe Marathon

Canoe Marathon is an exciting race to watch and be a part of, and spectators were able to watch it live on the Oklahoma River during the event! Athletes completed a series of laps on the Oklahoma River to reach a total marathon distance that ranges between 18.7 and 30 kilometers (11.6 and 18.6 miles), depending on age group, boat class and gender. Racing included portaging where athletes paddled into a dock at full speed jostling for the best position, then sprinted with their boats 80 yards across land before returning to the water for the next lap.
