With ice out, kayak season is underway

When the ice disappears along the Lester River in Duluth, it means one thing: It’s time to get the kayaks out.

“Lester is pretty unique because it’s a high quality class, four-five run,” Lester River Race Director Ryan Zimny tells WDIO. “To have it right in the city limits, next to a pretty good size city is really unique.”

The race takes advantage of the spring melt runoff.

What’s it like being in a kayak on a river that’s anxious to get somewhere? This.

Here are the results of Sunday’s race.
