Canaqua Sports Events

After a complete shutdown in 2020 we are looking forward to running a limited number of events this summer as we continue to make our way through the current pandemic. All races will be run in accordance with the local Covid requirements and will give all participants a safe and friendly way to race. We are looking at opening up registration for our events sometime in May. Watch for more information to follow.

CanPro Marketing – Formerly Canaqua Sports Sales

Given our background in both sporting goods sales and corporate sales the decision was made to bring both ends of our sales under one umbrella and called it CanPro Marketing. With over 30 years in sales in both marketplaces we are here to assist you with all your sports or promotional products needs.
