This event is a local tradition on Labor Day long weekend! Whether you’re an athlete or a spectator, this is an event you’ll remember for a long time!
It’s the most thrilling competition in long-distance rowing sports in North America. Yes, nothing less! Our beautiful Saint-Maurice River, natural and unique in the world, tests international caliber canoe marathon, kayak and rabaska athletes in three stages over nearly 200 km. The endurance event between La Tuque and Trois-Rivières notably offers one of the most spectacular lifts here in Shawinigan, a highlight of the competition. There’re many supporters on the Promenade du Saint-Maurice to encourage the athletes in an exciting atmosphere during this crucial stage!
La Classique, it’s more than 70,000 visitors who, during four days of cultural and sporting festivities, come to celebrate the courageous athletes competing against the legendary Saint-Maurice River. Be part of the party too by attending music shows and various free activities. Kids will love the family zones! Fancy a sporting challenge? Paddle board, kayak and outrigger competitions are accessible to all.
