At 9pm on Saturday, July 26, 2014, two-person teams will begin North America’s toughest, richest, non-stop canoe race. At the sound of the gun, the teams, carrying their canoes on their shoulders, race several blocks through the streets of Grayling, Michigan, to the AuSable River in front of The Old AuSable Fly Shop. The 14- to 19-hour, 120 mile race, runs throughout the night, finishing in Oscoda at Lake Huron. Considered to be the world’s toughest spectator sport, approximately 50,000 fans will cheer on the competitors at various points throughout the race.
