The City of Dubuque & the Dubuque Area Convention & Visitors Bureau are excited to have the opportunity to host the 2017 USCA National Marathon Canoe & Kayak Championships. Competition will take place on the mighty Mississippi River and Chaplain Schmidt Island and should offer a unique, yet challenging experience. Attendees will have the opportunity to camp or park on the island and enjoy Dubuques most popular green activities without hopping back in their vehicles, given the makeup of Chaplain Schmidt Island and its close amenities.
