The Weyerhaeuser AuSable River Canoe Marathon is the richest canoe race in North America. The $50,000 purse will be up for grabs by expert paddlers from around the world. The racecourse runs almost the entire length of the AuSable River, 120 miles. Paddlers begin by running LeMans style on Saturday, July 28th at 9:00 p.m. to The Old AuSable Fly Shop with thousands of shouting spectators looking on. On Sunday morning, the Black Bear Bicycle Tour will depart for Oscoda to catch the paddlers at the end of their overnight adventure. The race ends Sunday, July 29th in Oscoda, MI on the shores of Lake Huron.
