A New Start
This year we will have a New Start.
Our old starting location is no longer
available. We are working on a new
starting location. Please check back
soon for the New Start.
The Pewaukee Kiwanis RiverRun is a community event that encourages friends and families to float the Pewaukee River. The Kiwanis Club matches all of the proceeds from the event to assist the Pewaukee Food Pantry in their mission to help struggling families keep food on their tables.
The RiverRun starts in Pewaukee and ends in Frame Park in Waukesha. The six mile course has flat water in the upper stretches with twisting, rough, fast water at the lower end. Make sure to wear your personal flotation devices and dress appropriately for the weather and the possibility of getting swamped. Participants with children are encouraged to use caution and rely on your own judgement in the rough sections. Spotters will be present at the trickiest locations to assist if you tip over, but will not actively prevent capsizing.
Get those canoes and kayaks ready and challenge your family, friends, and neighbors to a race!
**The fastest and slowest entrants of the event will be determined by their individual times. Start times are assigned on race day, first come, first served. Contestants must finish by noon. Winners must be present at the award ceremony (12:30 p.m.) to accept their prize.
