The Long Lake Lap is a fundraiser event for the Rice Creek Boat Club hosted at Long Lake in New Brighton. Proceeds support keeping program fees low for juniors and adults. Thank you for supporting our organization!

As in past years, all types of human-powered boats are welcome, but the featured event will be a canoe duathlon. 


8 AM: Day-of registration (online registration encouraged!), Boat Number pick-up, Open Course

9 AM: Duathlon Interval Start (one boat every 30 seconds, start time will be pre-assigned) - Tandem (two-person) boats will paddle one lap (4 miles) around Long Lake, transition to a solo boat and paddle another lap! (Two laps total)

Just want to race in a tandem? No problem. Just finish the first lap, and we'll mark that time!

Just want to race in a solo boat? Join a Solo wave start at 10 AM. 1 lap.

10 AM: Solo Boat Start

Where: Start/Finish at the Long Lake Regional Park Beach

Rules/safety guidelines:

  • Masks will be worn on-shore, but can be taken off on the water, provided you are physically distant from other boats.
  • We will have self-serve boat numbers as needed. 
  • Participants will start every 30 seconds to spread boats out.
  • There will not be any behind boat drafting. Side drafting will be allowed if physically distant. 
  • Following the race, feel free to socialize with space. There is a large field by the lake to spread out in. However, there will not be post-race food, nor an Awards ceremony. 
  • We will have home-made dessert prizes at the event. We will announce the winners who can pick out their prize after the completion of everyone's race. Prizes for the following categories:
    • Top duathlon male, Top duathlon female, Top tandem athletes (for each person, taking out the top duathlon winners), Top solo male, Top solo female, and Back of the Pack award!
