CANTON -- St. Lawrence Valley Paddlers Duathlon Series begins Wednesday, June 20 on and near the Little River, starting from the boat launch off Park Street.
The fun paddling and running race is free for all participants and all are welcome. Both canoes and kayaks are allowed and can have one or two paddlers. There is a good chance that anyone in need of a runner or paddler will be able to find someone at the event on race night.

The other two duathlons this summer are on July 18 and Aug. 15.
