Muskoka River X – The Ox Weekend

June 15, 2019 - June 16, 2019

Paddle the beautiful and quiet waters of Oxtongue Lake and Oxtongue River. Enjoy two full days of racing. On day one, go head-to-head within a high intensity short course format in which pairs of teams face off against each other. On day two, race a 10km sprint, 30km tri-paddle or 40km marathon event. During the evening, relax and enjoy family and friends at a BBQ Feast. There are categories and options for everyone.

Located on the edge of Oxtongue Provincial Park and just east of Algonquin Provincial Park, Oxtongue Lake and River is the perfect location for water sport racing. With protected and quiet waters and spectacular scenery, THE OX offers a spectator-friendly short course stadium and 10km marathon loop. The site is well serviced with accommodations, basic provisions and is hosted at Algonquin Outfitters’ premier backcountry base-camp. Oxtongue Lake is the quintessential Canadian paddling destination.

Battle of the Paddle

Saturday June 15, 2019

Enjoy head-to-head, high intensity short course racing in which pairs of teams face off against each other in a double-elimination format. Each team races at least twice per event. First round pairs are randomly drawn. Race One is for seeding. Race Two starts the elimination. Teams keep progressing to the next round as long as they keep winning. The last winning team is the winner. Canoe classes are a “ONE DESIGN” event, meaning all teams will paddle a standardized watercraft provided by race management. Participate in as many events as you are eligible. Awards will be presented at Algonquin Outfitters THE OX banquet on Saturday evening.

Sprint, Tri-Paddle and Marathon

Sunday June 16, 2019

Sprint and Marathon racing in which teams paddle a 10km loop on Oxtongue Lake and the Oxtongue River. Teams complete as many loops as necessary to reach the total distance in each event. Teams may resupply nutrition/hydration/supplies at the designated “feeding station” upon the completion of each loop, located at the start-finish line. Support teams are encouraged!
