2007 Marathon and Ultra Marathon Paddling Race Calendar

I am introducing a race calendar for 2007 with a focus on marathon and ultra marathon kayak and canoe events. I am starting with races which are within my driving range or within my range of interest. If you would like to post your race here please send me information by e-mail or just write it down in comments below. You are welcome to send me some pictures from your previous races or a race course.

There are two listings. In the race events we can post individual races. I would like to limit this list to long distance events. The shortest race is the 10 mile Dotsero Race on Colorado River, but it is the only annual flatwater race in Colorado at this time. It is also possible to post race schedules from paddling clubs or organizations. I would appreciate any corrections or updates.
