Kanu-Marathon und SUP-Race Vierwaldstättersee



Water sports
The Lake Lucerne Canoe Marathon is the only marathon in Switzerland for canoeists and stand-up paddlers. Anyone from top athletes to recreational athletes can take on the course.
In the morning, participants set off towards the sun on the unique marathon. The two canoe distances, half marathon (21 km) or marathon (42 km) or SUP distance (13 km) can be completed in a racing kayak, sea kayak, canoe or SUP. This marathon is nestled in a fascinating Alpine panorama, which attracts numerous paddlers every year.

In addition to the finish, the mass start is certainly one of the highlights. At no other canoe race in Switzerland are so many paddlers at the start at the same time. These include top athletes such as former Olympic participants, as well as recreational athletes whose primary goal is to complete the course.

The canoe marathon is not just a spectacle for the participants, there is also plenty on offer for spectators. A festival restaurant provides refreshments and various water sports companies present their products at the trade fair directly at the finish line.

A SUP race for children and young people will be held in the morning in 2024.
