Gregory Canoe Classic

April 30, 2023

What a feat! Do you know of any regional sporting events that can coax people to travel hundreds of kilometres to participate in a sport that ordinarily, they would never consider trying? The Gregory River Canoe Marathon does just that.

While the majority of paddlers are novices who are entering the race purely for fun, the serious competitors are also catered for with the opportunity to win some major prize money.

The overall race record stands at 2 hours 43 minutes and 23 seconds set by Matt Flower and Chad Meek in 2001. $2000 is offered to anyone who can beat this time.

➡️ Race day: Sunday, 30 April 2023
➡️ Registration fee will be the same as last year:
🛶 $120 for the long race
🛶 $60 for the short race
🛶 $30 for under 18’s
➡️ 16 years and older – allowed to paddle solo
➡️ 14-15 years old – need to be paddling with an adult
➡️ If you need to hire a canoe – Paul Fletcher is the man to contact 0414 483 459
➡️ Other equipment hire will be available through the registration process.

If you wish to hire a Knysna K1, the North West Canoe Club have five available for hire. Please contact Paul Fletcher on 0414483459.
