Entry is by donation

There is no fee to enter a boat for this race. We ask that you collect donations, all of which are for the Long Lake Park Association, the volunteer-run, not-for-profit group who cares for the Lakeview & Waterfront Trails, parking lot, and facilities.

Welcome our new sponsor!
