FLCC 2023 Spring River Run April 22/23

Come join us for your best time on the Fraser River! Fort Langley Canoe Club re-boots its well-loved Spring River Run on Saturday April 22 (OC6 races) and Sunday, April 23 (small boat races).

If you’ve raced with us before, you know what to expect: a scenic course on the beautiful Bedford Channel and Fraser River, away from city and boat congestion. You’ll prepare for the hard push against your competition and the river current (and, possibly tide) on one leg and then a lightning-fast split on the return. You may encounter bald eagles, seals, sturgeon, salmon, and, even our small local deer herd, as our resident spectators).

After your race, stay for what scenic Fort Langley has to offer including the historic Fort, as well as shopping, restaurants and excellent craft beer!


This is a CORA-sanctioned race and you must be a CORA member.

FLCC Spring River Run 2023 will be a spec-boat only race and FLCC will provide you a spec boat – Bradley Lightning, Calmar, Clipper Advantage and Mirage models – if you need one.
