Lewiston Auburn River Race at Riverfest!

The Androscoggin Land Trust (ALT) and the Lewiston Auburn Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce are proud to partner for this year’s River Race as part of the 2021 RiverFest lineup of activities. For prior participants, please note the changes to the racecourses this year. These changes have enabled you to register for up to two races. The River Race is an exciting, family-oriented day celebrating the Androscoggin River, the Auburn and Lewiston Downtowns, and highlighting the contributions the river makes to outdoor recreation opportunities and the local economy. Observers, race team supporters, family, and friends are welcome to participate in the festivities at no charge.
