Wouldn’t it be great to have an online database of race results, where you could track your results over time or compare yourself to the rest of the country?
The MRC has compiled a database of six seasons race results. We’re looking for keen data analysts in the paddling community to help us work out how to get more from this data in future.
The database can be accessed in Google Sheets here. The MRC is seeking ideas by 18th October, to discuss at our all day meeting of 18th November.
Any questions please email James
This decision is expected to be ratified at the MRC meeting of 18th November and implemented from 1st January. If you have any comments or questions please email the MRC Secretary.
