Pewaukee River Run
Saturday May 14 – 48th Annual Pewaukee Kiwanis RiverRun
Our theme this year is “The Water Calls”
The Pewaukee Kiwanis Club thanks everyone that made the 2021 RiverRun a success! Our sponsors, volunteers, community, and all the racers that participated.
For the past 48 years, hundreds of Pewaukee’s families and friends have paddled the Pewaukee River and enjoyed both the beauty and excitement the river has to offer. This year, we ask those of you who have enjoyed the RiverRun to share your experience with others and encourage them to Paddle Pewaukee with you.
The Pewaukee Kiwanis RiverRun is a community event that encourages friends and families to float the Pewaukee River. The Kiwanis Club matches all of the proceeds from the event to assist the Pewaukee Food Pantry in their mission to help struggling families keep food on their tables.
The RiverRun starts in Pewaukee and ends at Frame Park in Waukesha. The seven-mile course has flat water in the upper stretches with twisting, rough, fast water at the lower end. Make sure to wear your personal flotation devices and dress appropriately for the weather and the possibility of getting swamped. Participants with children are encouraged to use caution and rely on your own judgement in the rough sections. Spotters will be present at the trickiest locations to assist if you tip over but will not actively prevent capsizing.
Get those canoes and kayaks ready and challenge your family, friends, and neighbors to a race!
