Reading CC have indicated their ambition to host the 2021 National Marathon Championships on the weekend of 10-11 July.
This event will hopefully include a full programme of championship races, however the organisers and MRC will be keeping a close eye on the local and national situation and may need to restrict the programme if necessary.
This event will also serve as the first GB team assessment race of the season.
Details will follow in due course.
The MRC hopes to be able to announce plans for the resumption of racing soon, we are waiting on formal guidance from British Canoeing and ultimately Sport England and DCMS.
Nevertheless, the assessment events planned for 25th April (Norwich K1/C1) and 2nd May (short-course races at the South Cerney regatta) are both cancelled. The latter will be re-scheduled.
It is mandatory for all athletes competing for Great Britain to attend a clean sport workshop every two years. These will be offered online this year, and any athletes aiming to be selected for internationals this year must complete one, or they will be unable to take up a team place.

This new structure will give beginner U14 athletes of all ages and capabilities an opportunity to have an introduction to flat water racing. Progression through the new divisions is based on speed and ability with athletes having the opportunity to race K1s and Mini K1s prior to being promoted into the Hasler divisions.
