Run of the Charles: Boston’s Premier Paddling Race

April 27

The Run of the Charles, Boston’s premier paddling race, returns on Saturday, April 27 and race registration is OPEN NOW! Paddlers from across New England are beginning to register for this famed event. From experts to novices, individuals to corporate relay teams, all are welcome. Kicking off the paddling season, the event is the largest flat-bottom boat race in New England and draws over a thousand racers and spectators each year with the help of nearly 150 volunteers.

Run of the Charles is one of the signature events of Charles River Watershed Association (CRWA), the leading science and advocacy organization for the Charles River and its watershed. The work accomplished by CRWA over the past 50+ years has significantly improved the health of the 80-mile-long Charles River. CRWA has played a major role in restoring the Charles River, re-establishing it as a destination for paddlers and nature lovers alike.
