The 2013 All American River Race in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, sponsored by the Sturbridge Lions Club, takes place this Sunday, April 28. This annual timed race is over 6 miles, starting one craft each minute.
Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. at Turners Field, off Route 20 in Fiskdale. The first boat is sent off at 11:01 a.m. and heads for the finish line at Westville Dam Recreational Area in Southbridge.
Trophies are given to the first 3 finishers in each class.
The Westville Dam Recreational Area features food and entertainment as well as strategic viewing spots to see the craft negotiate the rapids area.
The Lions Club and the Hospital Auxiliary will hold their annual fundraising Duck Race after the Canoe Race. Thousands of yellow rubber ducks are dumped into the river and the first 5 ducks over the finish line provide some cash for the winners.
