Marathon Racing is returning to Arawa Canoe Club in January 2024!

Whether you’re working through your base training for Canoe Racing New Zealand Sprint Nationals, finalising your prep for Kathmandu Coast to Coast, or just love Marathon racing (as you should), everyone who participates will benefit from the event.
There’s a little bit of something for everyone-  K1, K2, Multisport, Doubles, short races, long races, and if you don’t feel like racing there’s always space for some helpers across the weekend as well!
The event is open to everyone. North Island paddlers (or anyone further afield), no promises but we might be able to arrange some boats to use for the weekend to help with the logistics of attending.
Course maps will be released closer to the event, but registrations are open now!
Day 1 – Short course registration:
Day 2 – Long course (K1/Multisport) registration:
Day 3 – Long course (K2/Doubles) registration:
