ALAN LAWS TO STEP DOWN FROM MRC

Alan Laws has made the decision to step down from the Marathon Racing Committee, and as Chairman of Selectors, following nearly half century of voluntary work for our sport, at national and international level.

Alan was appointed to the MRC for the first time in 1969, and apart from a period as Chairman of the BCU has been a member ever since, serving as Chairman for 28 years. During this time Alan also served on the International Canoe Federation’s own marathon committee for 34 years, steering the sport from its first World Championships (held in Nottingham in 1988), to the highly professional, multi-day championships that they are today.

We will all have done a race which would never have happened without Alan’s, and his wife Christine’s work, and the MRC cannot express its gratitude sincerely enough for what they have done for our sport over the years.

Results data project – request for ideas

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
