PADDLING -- The date for the Spokane River Canoe Classic is different this year -- June 30 instead of Fathers Day weekend -- to assure lower flows will keep the event on the river. 

In some recent years, the Mountain Gear organizers have had to move the event to flatwater venues for safety reasons.

Get details and download a registration form for this fun event that appeals to racers and families, canoeists and kayakers alike.

Debuting this year is a new category for stand up paddle boards!
