The BetonKanoRace (BKR) is a yearly canoe racing event in which teams from different universities contest. Their goal is to design and construct competitive concrete canoes and compete on several categories. Those categories, ranging from a sustainability award to a prize for the fastest team on a specific distance, lead to the right mixture of innovation and athleticism.

Each year, the BKR is organized by a different study association. This year, Avans University Of Applied Science will organize the 42nd edition.

The date of the BetonKanoRace 2019 is May 24th till 26th. The location of this years’ edition will soon be announced.


The initiator of the BKR is the Betonvereniging; the knowledge network for anything regarding concrete construction. Since its founding in 1927, the Betonvereniging links municipalities, constructors, advisors, and knowledge institutes. A network with professionals on all possible levels, with the goal of passing on knowledge.

The weekend will be organized by Avans, this year.
