PNSW 2016 Marathon State Championships

2016-02-05 16:01 - 2016-02-05 16:01

Entry for the 2016 PNSW Marathon State Championships is now OPEN !

This year the Marathon State Championships will be held on the beautiful Narrabeen Lakes, on Sunday 13th March, hosted by Manly Warringah Kayak Club.

Continuing the format from 2015, there will be Singles Events in the morning session, with Doubles events held in the afternoon.
Medal Presentations will take place at the conclusion of each racing session.

Paracanoe, SUP & Canoe, along with all forms of recreational craft, are all encouraged to enter.

Entry is through the AC Regattas website……….HERE

Responding to feedback from paddlers after last year’s races, there have been some minor changes to some distances and event timing, but otherwise you should all expect to see a repeat of the fantastic day of racing that we experienced at the State Championships in 2015.

Preliminary information can be found in the Draft Event Information Guide (see PDF attached) which provides details on Entry procedure, an Event TImetable, Distances, Portage information, etc.
This is only a first draft and more information is yet to be provided (map of the course) but it is released to paddlers now in the interests of getting some information out there.

Keen paddlers will warm up at the BGCC round of the PNSW Marathon Series on 27th February, and then again at the PNSW Marathon State Championships, before heading on to represent NSW at the AC Marathon National Championships on the Gold Coast over Easter.

The PNSW Marathon Committee looks forward to seeing all NSW paddlers competing in these State Championships, and wishes all competitors the best of luck in whatever events they enter.
