After the run, Southampton Rotary and Thorncrest Outfitters will be hosting a Put in & Paddle race down the beautiful Saugeen River. At 1 PM, the Saugeen Shores Trolley will take you to access point 14 (Bruce Rd 3) where you will paddle down to access point 15 (Denny’s Dam). You can bring your own canoe or kayak, or Thorncrest Outfitters will supply you with canoe/kayak and all necessary safety equipment ($50/person). This is a family friendly event, ages 5-100, expected to take about 2 hours. There will be experienced canoeists sweeping the river after the last canoe or kayak. After prizes are awarded, you will get a ride back to Southampton. To book your canoe or kayak rental contact Thorncrest Outfitters no later than Wed May 31 by 5 pm.
