This is the final race in the Kayak Krazy 10km series and is also the national 10km champs.

Held at clubs around the country, this series has races for all ages and abilities. You can track your points and progress against other paddlers.

Each race accumulates points per below. To be eligible to win the SERIES you must race TWO races PLUS the Champs (Double points for the Champs).  All paddlers who attend the Champs are eligible for spot prizes but you must have completed two series races plus the champs to be eligible for the top prize of a one-on-one coaching session with Tim Brabants, Olympic medallist, World Champion and Open Mens Coach.

The Champs will be held on Lake Okareka and winners will earn a national title and medal.  Racing will allow for Tyros (2.5km), Juniors U14 & U16 (5km) and Seniors U18+ (10km).  Medals will be awarded to each age group: Tyros (U12), U14, U16, U18, Open, Masters and Multicraft division.  The multi craft division (skis, multi, etc) will be split into U18 ,  Open and Masters only.  For K1s  Masters age groups will be split into 35-44, 45-54 and 55+ only if there is a minimum of 3 entered into each age group.  Otherwise they will be combined.
