Om-a-Can-Can-oe Pedal Paddle Run
Triathlon in Raymond


Are you looking for a fun family friendly outdoor event that everyone can get involved with? Then you don't want to miss the Om-a-Can-Can-oe Pedal Paddle Run Triathlon on Saturday Sept. 10 in Raymond, NH. The course is designed for all ages and varying abilities.

Friends of Raymond Recreation have mapped out a really fun 5K pedal route around Riverside Park on Sundeen Parkway, a 2K paddle route around Carol Lake on the Lamprey River at the Lamprey River Elementary School and a 3K trail run out on the Rockingham Recreation Rail Trail.

Join in the fun, rain or shine, to participate in all three events or just one part of the triathlon with the entire family or split up into a team with one member doing each leg. Bring your mountain bike, running shoes and canoe or kayak or any human powered watercraft to join in fun.

The triathlon will begin with the bike route at 9:30 am starting from the Lamprey River Elementary School heading out to the Riverside Park trail and return to the school. For the second leg of the triathlon, you will jump into your canoe or kayak and paddle around Carol Lake in the Lamprey River. The last leg will be an easy flat run out the Rockingham Recreational Trail and back to the finish.

The idea behind the triathlon was from Greg Bemis, who wanted a fun event for the entire family to participate in and enjoy while also raising funds for the canoe/kayak launch on Old Manchester Road.

The cost for the family or team of 4 is $25, one adult is $10 and youth under 13 is free.

More information coming.

Proceeds benefit the Oma-can-canoe Canoe / Kayak Launch on the Lamprey River in Raymond.

“In nature nothing exists alone.”
~ Rachel Carson, Silent Spring ~

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth
find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
There is something infinitely healing
in the repeated refrains of nature
-- the assurance that dawn comes after night,
and spring after winter.”
