Marathon assessment races 2021

The Marathon Selection Committee has currently scheduled a series of assessment races this season, with the aim of selecting a large team for the Worlds in September (see policy). The first assessment events planned are on 25th April (singles long course, Norwich) and 2nd May (singles short course, South Cerney).

Both of these events are subject to national and local restrictions, as well as the ability to organise an event at the planned venues which is COVID-safe for both the paddling community and the general public.

The Government appear to be relaxing the rules on outdoor gathering in time for these events to happen, but we must wait to see more details and also follow British Canoeing’s guidance. More information will be published in due course.
