Competitive Kayaking 

Many of Toledo River Gang club members enjoy kayaking for the simple joy of paddling on the water. Other members exercise their competitive spirit by participating in kayak races.

With that, this page is designed to showcase kayak and paddling races in our area. If you have a race that you’d like us to feature on our site, please email us at:  toledorivergang@gmail.com.
