The best way to experience Clear Lake is lakeside. Grab your paddle and join the fun for our inaugural Paddlefest event!

Explore the shores on your kayak, canoe, or paddle board on either our 5 mile or 3 mile course.  Bring the kids along too for the 1 mile youth course (age 18 and under).

Check out our Course Map tab to see our routes. See our Schedule tab for our race day line-up. Need to rent a kayak, canoe, or SUP? We will have some for rent, but there will be limited availability!

This is a great opportunity for water sports enthusiasts to come together and have a good time! Stay for the After Party and celebrate your finish with food, drinks, and music!
