CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – Chappaqua residents Alex Charney and Dennis Charney are among the first entries in the Charles River Watershed Association’s 31st Annual "Run of the Charles Canoe and Kayak Race," which will be held Sunday, April 28, in Weston, Mass.

The race, which celebrates the tradition of the Charles River, draws 1,500 paddlers and thousands of spectators to enjoy a day full of competition and festivities on the river.

Alex is entered in the “Open Category” of the 19-Mile Race, while Dennis has entered into the “Senior Category” of the 19-Mile Race.

The race features paddling races for all skill levels, from expert to beginner. The $5,000 Professional Flatwater Canoe Marathon draws elite paddlers from across the United States and Canada while the 24-Mile Relay Race attracts many corporate teams looking for an adventurous bonding experience.

Along with those events, the 19-Mile, 9-Mile, and 6-Mile races bring out recreational paddlers ranging in age from 11 to 80.

Registration is open through race day, but racers can register now to avoid late fees.

For more information on registrating, becoming a volunteer or any other aspect of the race, call 508-698-6810, e-mail rotc@crwa.org or visit its website .
