The DW Committee and the Marathon Racing Committee are working together to promote a set of “classic” marathon races, which can be used by prospective DW paddlers and their support crews to better prepare themselves for the challenge.
We are also very keen that more races should be promoted in the north of the country. Hence the races being organised by Pennine Canoe Club, Canoe Scotland and Runcorn Canoe Club.

For clarity promotions can take place at non-divisional events. Such races are one of the few occasions that all divisions race over the same distances in the same conditions and are thus useful ‘leveller’ against which performances can be compared. Such races can also however be subject to adverse river levels and weather conditions which may be taken into account and mean that no promotions are appropriate.
