The race will be run in accordance with BC Marathon Racing Committee Rules. All Division 7, 8, 9 and under 12 paddlers must wear an approved buoyancy aid irrespective of the race they are entered into, and BAs are recommended for all paddlers who are U16. Race organisers reserve the right to insist that all competitors wear buoyancy aids.

It is highly recommended that footwear is worn by any paddlers required to portage. If any paddler has any medical condition or other pre-disposition that could compromise the paddler's safety on the water it is Norwich Canoe Club Policy that they MUST wear a buoyancy aid at all times whilst on the water regardless of their age, ability or the weather conditions on the day. It is the responsibility of the individual paddlers themselves (or their guardians if they are a junior) to ensure they adhere to this rule. Additionally if any visiting Team Leader is aware of any paddler from their own club who they feel should be wearing a buoyancy aid because they have a medical condition or other medical predisposition that could compromise that paddlers safety on the water it is that Team Leader's responsibility to automatically ban that paddler from getting on the water until he/ she complies with the above rule.
