HUP RACE CANCELLED

Unfortunately, due to a very low team signup, we had to cancel this year's HUP Race Event.
See you in 2022!
Grayling Main Street is super bummed to have to cancel Paddle Battle this year, but with only 7 registrations, we cannot host the event. We know this year is presenting some unique challenges and understand the struggle to take time off and/or commit the limited time folks have to events like this. We all enjoy watching these silly battles and look forward to returning in 2022.
Hosted by Grayling Main Street - Rae Gosling 989-390-7689
Deadline is Thursday, July 22nd
July 24-25, 2021

Attention local businesses, paddling teams, and fans!

The emcees of the 2021 Consumers Energy AuSable River Canoe Marathon Opening Program are looking for t-shirts to throw out to the crowd throughout the event. The t-shirt toss tends to be a crowd favorite each year and is a great way to promote your canoe racing team or advertise your business. If any paddlers or business owners are willing to donate t-shirts, please drop them off at John Cherven's office in the Grayling Mini Mall.
