Marathon Nationals – Final Results

The full results for the Marathon Nationals results can be found here (without promotions/demotions)
Due to a number of corrections to the provisional results, the club points have changed resulting in Reading winning the club title, with Nottingham a very close second in front of Wey in third.
Nottingham’s chair Pete Illett confirmed that although they were disappointed not to take the title this year, they wanted to thank Reading for a fantastic event and that this has only left the club even more motivated for next year.
We would also like to extend our thanks to Reading for hosting the 2021 event. We continue to look for a venue for 2022, so please reach out if your club is interested.

British Canoeing are in discussions with BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) about setting up a championship event for canoe racing. They are interested in the opinions of students who do canoe racing.

If you’d be interested in a BUCS championship please fill in this survey. PLEASE NOTE – it’s very much written from a sprint perspective. If you’d like to see a marathon element please make that very clear in the survey!
