A must paddle event for all long distance paddlers.

This long distance championship is open to kayak, multi and ski paddlers with separate divisions for kayaks and other craft. 

Exact marathon distances will be advised closer to the time with 18 - 29 km options depending on age.   Shorter distances for juniors will be available from 4km (U12) to 10km (U16).  All races will include portages except some of the older Masters age groups.

Laps will be 4km loops for the shorter distances and 6km loops for the longer distances.  The portage will be through Anzac Park as shown below, so is a decent distance that paddlers should be prepared for (up to 150m).  Get training for a bit of a run with your boat.  

Further info will be published here closer to the time.
