This page is dedicated to collecting great ultra-distance paddle race information.  Bookmark this page, and come back to it again and again when you need some good reading:

"Best of" Series
A collection of memoirs chuck full of great advice and tips from some of the best marathon paddlers in the midwest.  We start with two, but there will be more to come:

1)  Bryan Hopkin’s
“Tips on Going Big” in ultra distance events.

2)  Lee Deviney's excellent advice on "How to become a better marathon paddler"

Race Stories
We all have great memories of past races and adventures we've done.  Here you can read about some that have found their way to paper.

MPR Archives

It's like the national archives of Midwest Paddle Racing. There is so much great and valuable information that has been buried in the cyberpages of the forums from years ago, and it could have been lost for ages.

Canoe and Kayak Race Magazine
Unfortunatley the brainchild of magazine editor Dan Grubbs was discontinued in 2011, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy all the great issues - many of which focus on Midwest racers and racing.
