St. Lawrence Valley Paddlers held their last dualthlon of the season at Little River boat launch in Canton.The event consisted of two 1.25 mile run segments and one 1.5 mile paddle. John Newman, of GRB Newman Designs in Rensselaer Falls, completed the paddling part of the race in an 18 lb. carbon fiber canoe that he designed and built. "This location is a perfect set-up for us with a running trail in close proximity to the water," said Newman. "We think once people try the event, it will continue to grow."
