Let’s Get back to Marathon on October 6th
Chance to do a ranking Marathon at Elmbridge and help get The Sharks back into Marathon Racing.
There are distances for all levels and abilities and is fairly local about 12 miles from Southall and about a 40 minute drive. The address is Elmbridge Canoe Club, Dorney Gardens Car Park, Walton Lane Weybridge, Surrey, KT13 8LU.
For Under 16-years-old who are new to canoeing and anybody under 10; there is a 2 mile race. The distance between the bridges at Southall and back is 1 mile, so this race would be like doing that twice.
4 mile race for those in Divisions 7, 8 and 9, Division 9 is for entry level racers. There are no portages on these races. 4 miles is less than the distance to Bulls Bridge (Tesco) and back from Southall.
Both the races above start at 10:30am, with a race briefing at 10am, you will need to be there at 9am, with prize giving at 12:30pm.
For the more experienced racers the distances are:
8 miles for Divisions 4, 5 and 6, with no portages
12 miles for Divisions 1, 2 and 3 with two portages
The longer races start at 12:45, with a briefing at 12:30 and prize giving at 3:30pm.
It would be good to make a Club day out with all our new racers, for more information contact Neal on 07951 770241, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to us at one of our Southall sessions on Tuesday evenings.
Just a few hints as to people who could give this a try …
You are all out there folks, time to race …
