This is a 26-mile two-day marathon canoe race on the historic Headwaters of the Wisconsin River. Paddlers can paddle a whole marathon, half marathon, or short "Paddle For A Cure" race. This beautiful, fast and wild stream, with lots of challenging turns and obstacles, makes for an exciting and challenging race. This is the most spectacular part of the river and you don't want to miss an opportunity to paddle it. Recreation and Stock Boat racers will start from our RWT landing at 10:00 AM and travel half way down the racecourse to the landing at River Road. The race will continue the next day, at 10:00 AM from River Road to the Eagle River Inn in Eagle River. The pro-racers will do the entire course in one day beginning at 7:30 AM on Sunday from RWT. "Paddle for a Cure", a 3-mile race, starts at County G at 10:30 AM on Sunday. All racers will end at the Eagle River Inn Sunday for an exciting finish. All spectators are welcome at Rohr's Wilderness Tours, River Road and at the Eagle River Inn, where there will be a pig roast, raffles, and an awards ceremony. There are other exciting events planned for the race weekend. Please contact us for more details. The net proceeds from this worthwhile and fun event and all other direct fund raising will be used to fund pediatric brain tumor research.

Plans are underway for the 2014 race which is our 10th Anniversary Race. Mark your calendars, get your pledges going and make sure you are here. We're talking to sponsors, getting donations and loading up the auction closet so there will be lots of fun at the Saturday night auction and raffle, plus more for Sunday at the Pig Roast and Awards Ceremony at the Eagle River Inn.

We'll be out and about soon at the Patriot Center in Wausau on February 14-16 and at Canoecopia in Madison March 7-9. Stop by the booth and say HI and get the lastest news on Race 14. We look forward to having you here!

A big Thank You to all of our sponsors! An enormous Thank You to all our volunteers - without you this event couldn't be what it is!

2011 - It was simply fabulous!

2011 race has come and gone.
The DJ race on Sunday was quite exciting as "Jeff in the Morning" from Tomahawk sped from the start and "PJ in the Morning" and "Ben Merritt" of Coyote 93.7 rastled for the next spot and tried to stay afloat. About an hour later "Jeff in the Morning" came into the finish line with "PJ in the Morning" close on his heels. 2 of the 3 flipped their kayaks in the process and all three had a huge smile as they crossed the finish line. There's a big musky somewhere on the Eagle River wearing Ben's glasses after a flipover. Once again we had a great weekend filled with lots of food, fun, great auction, and awesome paddling! There' always great deals at the auction and 2011 kept us on pace.

Pictures from the 2010 and 2012 race weekends can be obtained at Smugmug go to Callie Rohr Race. They are just wonderful - thanks to Rich and Peg for taking them and putting this together! Purchase of these pictures benefits the race.

Pediactric Brain Tumors are now the number one medical killer of our kids and we need your help to make our goal of finding a cure a reality. We lost our daughter Callie in 1999,five days before her tenth birthday, to a brain tumor, after a two and half year battle against this devastating disease. Proceeds from this event benefit Children's Memorial Foundation.

If you want to donate to this worthwhile cause, you can contact the Rohr's at info@rwtcanoe.com, give them a call at 715-547-3639, drop them a line or stop in at Rohr's Wilderness Tours, 5230 Razorback Rd, Conover WI, 54519.
