No M'burgh Canoe Races in 2024

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 2/8/24 | 2/8/24

MIDDLEBURGH - Though the weather has yet not warmed up enough for venturing into the Schoharie Creek with your kayak or canoe, it looks like a popular water race will not be held this year.

The spring Middleburgh kayak-canoe races will not be held this April.

Race officials announced earlier this week that the race is off for 2024.

Officials announced, "The decision was made last Thursday. No one to coordinate I’m sad to say. We’re not the only race having trouble finding a race director. Event volunteers are not a problem, finding someone to coordinate the legwork is."

Officials were hoping to hold the 10th annual Middleburgh Sloughter Canoe/Kayak Regatta and Ironman/Triathlon event on Saturday April 20.

The race was not held last year for a similar reason.

Last year, Middleburgh Rotarian Joan Wissert said, "We’ve lost the Regatta/Ironman/Triathlon (for this year at least) because no one from Rotary was willing or able to chair the committee."

The popular races which ran for several years before the pandemic and returned last year drew numerous participants.

The races started at the parking area on Route 30 in Fulton and ended at the pavilion off Route 30 in the village. The races also had a triathlon portion that included running and bicycling.
