2024 TNR Season Starts April 2nd.

Welcome to Tuesday Night Races, the largest weekly paddlesport event in North America!

Join us at Deep Cove Kayak for an exciting evening of open water racing. We welcome all types of paddling vessels, including kayaks, SUPs, canoes, OC’s, prone boards, and surf-skis.

Whether you’re an experienced paddler or just starting out, our races are the perfect way to challenge yourself and have fun with like-minded individuals. Our races are a healthy balance of friendly competition and community, where you can build long lasting connections within the paddling community. You don’t need to be a ‘pro’ or technically gifted to participate in our races. We’re a welcoming paddling community and we love to see beginners try it out!

The 2024 Tuesday Night Race series begins on April 2nd 2024, and runs until September 10th 2024. In addition to our regular races, we have three major events that you won’t want to miss. These races will be held on the following dates and are sure to be highlights of the racing season:

  • TNR Year End – TBA
  • Board the FjordMay 11
  • Whey Ah Wichen Whipper – Saturday September 14th

Races are $5 per person and for those who do not have their own paddling equipment, don’t worry! Rentals are available for an additional fee from either Deep Cove Kayak during the months of April, May, and June or Cates Park Paddling Centre during the months of July, August, and September.

Don’t forget to bring along a positive attitude and a competitive spirit, as we strive to create a friendly and inclusive atmosphere for all participants. We encourage you to arrive at check-in on time to avoid any delays and to give yourself ample time to prepare for the race.

Tuesday Night Race Schedule:

  • Check-in opens at 6pm
  • Check-in closes at 6:45pm
  • Racing commence promptly at 7pm

So racers, grab your paddling vessel and come join us for a truly entertaining evening on the water!
