New Kayak Marathon

The Meridian Twizel Hard Labour Weekend Committee is proud to announce the addition of a full 30 km kayak marathon to the weekend programme. It will involve a paddle up the Ohau canals against the current then it will connect up with the existing course in navigating around Lake Ruataniwha before heading back down the Ohau canals. There will be 3 portages, the first of which is an uphill climb around Ohau B power station.

This event has been endorsed by Canoe Racing New Zealand and as a silver event, results will go towards the NZ Paddler Series rankings. Entries are restricted to K1 and K2 boats.

We’ll update the programme shortly with more details, but if you are interested registrations are now open.
