BARRINGTON, N.S. – The annual Barrington River Run is being held Saturday, May 12, starting at 10 a.m. from Clements Pond on Highway 103 just east of Barrington.
The event is a favorite for canoe and kayaking enthusiasts from southwestern Nova Scotia. The horseshoe shaped course takes paddlers across Clements Pond to the Pond Branch, onto Barrington Lake, and then down the Barrington River, where there are five sets of rapids to run or portage, depending on experience.
Organizers will be on hand to help paddlers navigate the runs.
Participants are asked to pack a lunch and encouraged to bring a bug jacket.
The River Run ends at the Wild Axe Park next to the Barrington Woolen Mill at the mouth of the Barrington River, where transportation will be provided back to the start to retrieve vehicles.
