Northwest Ohio River Runners

We are an organization based in Northwest Ohio for families and individuals who love the water and kayaking.

We have regular monthly meetings, a weekly open paddle on *Tuesday evenings from Spring through Fall (*Thursday rain date) along with pop up paddles on other days. See the Calendar for more information and follow us on Facebook for updates and cancellations.

NWORR was formed in June 2009 as the brainchild of Howard Pinkley, life long resident, avid sailor, entrepreneur and the unofficial mayor of Point Place. He had a desire to create a canoe/kayak club in hopes that it would inspire families to spend quality time together enjoying the lakes and rivers in the area.

His vision was realized in June 2009, when the Northwest Ohio River Runners (NWORR) canoe and kayak club was formed in the Point Place/Shoreland area of Toledo, OH. In April 2011, the Howard Pinkley Landing (HP Landing) at 2250 Shoreland Ave for kayak and canoes was open.

In June of 2019 NWORR celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary!

Mission Statement: To inform, teach, and share in the fun and safety of the sport, for individuals and families in northwest Ohio and across the country.
