3rd Annual Run of the Royal 2018: Build Your Team. Protect Our River
Thanks for your support in 2017. Stay tuned for details on the 3rd Annual Run of the Royal 2018, on a Saturday in the month of May 2018.
This four-leg, flatwater canoe relay race supports the Royal River Conservation Trust and our plans to acquire and improve public paddling access points and shoreline habitat up and down the river, its tributaries, headwater ponds, and on Casco Bay.
The race’s relay format, with eight racers paddling four legs (two paddlers/leg) is designed as a team-building opportunity. Additional race information is here.
The relay race course begins and ends at Yarmouth History Center on East Elm Street in Yarmouth. The Yarmouth History Center bustles with live music, food vendors, art shows, raffles, and the History Center’s excellent exhibits.
We had a strong turnout for the 2017 race. We had 17 teams of eight paddlers registered from Brentwood, Aging Excellence x 2, LL Bean x 2, Maine Beer, TJD&A, Scott Dugas Trucking & Excavating, Stantec, Fluid Imaging, Yarmouth Boat Yard, Garmin, Alexander & Schmidt, Air & Water Quality, Planson International, Hancock Lumber (Anchor Bolts), Brookside, and more.
A map of the race course is below. Learn more about this section of river, part of the Royal River Water Trail.
