Entries are now being taken for the National Marathon Championships through two routes.
Option 1 – New online entry portal
Please go to entries.gbcanoemarathon.co.uk to enter online. Payment can be taken online by card or PayPal. If your British Canoeing membership has expired you can also upload a picture of your new card and the new expiry date on it will be recorded.
Team leaders will be able to see who from their club has entered if you create an account on the site. If you are a club team leader please email email@example.com to have this permission added to your account.
This option is best for individual paddlers or clubs without a team leader
Option 2 – RACMAN Team Leaders entry form
You can also enter by filling in the RACMAN Nationals team leader’s entry form available to download here. This works in the same way as the RACMAN Hasler programme, but only includes the paddler entry functionality. Please send you completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org, and use the following account details to make payment by bank transfer:
Bank: Lloyds Bank
Account name Norwich Canoe Club
Sort Code 30-96-17
Account no. 04603805
This option is best for clubs with a team leader who has already started collecting entries and/or payments from club paddlers.
Important: Please make sure you are only entered through one of these two routes. Your club team leader will tell you which method to use.

As we move into the summer and the MRC/SRC bursary for the British Canoeing Race coach award continues, it would be helpful to know how many clubs would still like to put coaches forward for the award and the bursary.
We have had 60+ coaches complete the Race discipline specific course so far, and are now starting to allocate funding for the assessment to finish the qualification. As the funding is from a finite amount, we need to spend it in the most effective and beneficial way for the clubs and sport.
If your club is wanting to put coaches through the award – or if it has already done so and is now wanting to arrange an assessment – then let us know so we can plan to help out accordingly, as it is on a first come, first served basis.
A reminder – the original information on the bursary and the course can be found here. As the BC course finder isn’t working fully at the moment, we also have a list (not exhaustive) of course providers and assessors that we can put you in contact with.
Finally, a big congratulations to the clubs and coaches who have undertaken the course, and to those that’ll be passing this year – well done!
