Sign up now for the 3rd Annual Big Island & Back! Paddle Event


We are excited to announce the 3rd Annual Big Island & Back! 10K Paddle on Sunday, August 14th - starting at 10AM from the Beach at Excelsior Commons.

Tune up your canoe, kayak or paddleboard and head on over to Excelsior on Sunday, August 14th for a friendly race out around Big Island and back. We start near the swim area at Excelsior Beach Park. Our goal is to get paddlers of all ages and skill levels out on Lake Minnetonka for a great community summer event and raise money for a couple of worthy causes.

Don't miss the after-party at Excelsior Brewing Company beginning at 11AM for refreshments from Joey Nova's, music, and of course - beer!  Awards and door prizes at 12 noon, with guest emcee Belinda Jensen from KARE11!  


Make a day of it and explore beautiful Excelsior! 

Proceeds from the race entry fees will be donated to the ICA Food Shelf program and the Freshwater Society. Thank you for your support!
