Return to Racing and Events

Following the government announcement on 9th July, British Canoeing has announced that planning can now begin for the reintroduction of competitions and events in England from 1st August 2020.

Race Cancellations

Due to the on-going uncertainties with Covid-19, Pangbourne CC have taken the decision to cancel their 2020 Hasler race which was due to run on 13 September.

Banbury and District CC have also cancelled their Hasler race (25 October) due both to the virus and the building works in the town restricting access to the water, thus making it unlikely it could be run safely.

New DW Preparation Race Series

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.
