Canal Kayak

The Steve Skinner Canal Kayak – Saturday 21 October

We are delighted to be able to bring back a variation of the once very popular Kayak Marathon which was a must do race for all kayakers and multisporters. We have brought the race back to its bare minimum so there is no posh feed, the numbers of categories are kept to a minimum and there are only the key rules to ensure safety. The course is shorter (20 km) with only two portages around power stations.

The emphasis is on a well organised, fun and safe event. Combine this race with the Pyramid Run and the Dusky Trail MTB and you have a weekend of genuine multisport.

The canal kayak has been moved to Saturday morning this year, the registration and scrutineering is just before the race. Timing is pretty tight so please get there early so that we can get everyone processed. You will need to pass scrutineering before 7:30 am to be eligible to start the race and absolutely no-one will be allowed to begin after the main start at 8 am.
