We have a novice category which is our fastest growing category and is perfect for people who are new to the sport.

For the main event we have the following categories:

Junior/Novice/Open/Veteran/Classic/Double/Sea Kayak


There are male and female categories for all of the above except for Double which is one category regardless of gender or age.


The prologue has the same categories but they have been combined into 3 classes for the small prize pool we have on offer.


We have a race facebook page which will be updated in the lead up to our races so anyone who is interested in the Rasdex Classic River Race Series would be well placed to follow this page

If competitors are members of a CRNZ Affliated Club a discount applies off the Main Event entry (as above).

Series entry discount for those who enter all 4 races by 14th October.


ALL paddlers in the main event must hold a Grade 2 certificate.  No grade 2 required for the prologue series but a degree of competency must be demonstrated.  Our safety director reserves the right to withdraw anyone who does not have an appropriate boat or skills to safely participate.
