Antler River Race

Discover the Antler River on September 25th!

Join us for a fun-filled scavenger hunt along the Antler River* (also known as the Thames River) on World Rivers Day weekend! You'll learn about the Antler River ecosystem, make new discoveries, complete challenges, and share your successes online.

The Incredible Antler River Race is for everyone, no matter your experience level.

You can participate at any location along the river that’s convenient to you, and at any time on September 25th. Registration is free, and there are prizes to be won. So, grab your family and friends within your social bubble, and let the river adventure begin!

Please note: all challenges included in this event can be completed from land.

You are in no way required to get into the river to take part in this event. Please respect signage and stay on the trails.

Deshkan Ziibi (Antler River) is the traditional Anishinaabemowin name for the Thames River. Flowing through London and neighbouring communities, the Antler River then makes its way to Lake St Clair and the Detroit River before finally emptying into Lake Erie.

How it Works: Sign up as an individual or with your social bubble of family/friends. Follow us on social media in the lead-up to race day. We will be sharing interesting and helpful clues! Facebook: FreshwaterAlliance, Twitter: @H2OAlliance and Instagram: @FreshwaterAlliance

Check your email on the day before Race Day. We will send you detailed instructions on how to complete the challenges. Complete the challenges by participating in the Incredible Antler River Race on Saturday, September 25th! Win amazing prizes. Throughout the day we will be selecting winners for prizes (TBA).

If the weather doesn't cooperate, we will move the event to Sunday, September 26. Complete details for this event are available on our website and will be emailed to you the week before the event.
