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.

The ICF marathon committee trains technical officials (ITOs) for international marathon events. If you are interested in volunteering and getting trained as an ITO, please email James Smythe to discuss. The deadline for applying for 2019 events is 1st December 2018.
