K2O: Kingston to Ottawa 200

202km Paddling Race
Rideau Canal, ON

The K2O is an ultra endurance, 202km marathon paddling race from Kingston to Ottawa through a UNESCO world heritage site. Racers have up to 36hrs to paddle the length of the Rideau Canal, portaging 22 times around lock stations as they race non-stop against the clock and each other. Large windy lakes, boat wake, weeds, fog and night time navigation add to the difficulty as paddlers make a push to the finish line. Get Out There's Brad Jennings teamed up with Kyle Nesbitt to tackle this challenging but rewarding race.
