The Leighton Buzzard Canoe Club Remembrance Marathon will take place on Sunday 8th November 2015 on the Grand Union Canal starting at Great Linford Wharf in Milton Keynes and finishing at the canoe club in Leighton Buzzard.
It was a very enjoyable event last year and this year promises to be even better so please come and join us.
By popular demand we are putting on a relay race for K2 Class C paddlers or average of Class C i.e. a div 6 with a div 8 or a div 5 with a div 9. Open to both seniors and juniors.
1st leg – Start to Fenny Lock – Approximately 6.5 miles – no portages
2nd leg – Fenny Lock to Finish – Approximately 8.5 miles – 3 portages
K2 relay open to all Class C (divisions 7, 8 & 9) paddlers of where the average ranking is in class C so a div 6 paddler can race with a div 8 or 9 and a div 5 paddler can race with a div 9.
Both paddlers must change at Fenny Lock. Support crews to be responsible for their paddlers change-over. There will be two marshals at Fenny Lock who will only get involved if there is a safety issue.
1st place team members will get a prize each. Certificates will be given for the total time for each team.
