Banbury & District Canoe Club Marathon

A Southern Region Hasler Race

Compton Road Carpark, Castle Quay, Banbury, OX16 2PR

Sunday 29th October 2023.



Follow signs to Castle Quay Shopping Centre car parks. See Word document below.

We will have exclusive use of the car park area at Compton Road where the event will be held and note that there will be no charge for the car park this year.

Due to the development that has taken place in the past 3 years it will not be possible to unload boats prior to the start of the race as in previous years. Please leave your boats on your car until you are ready to get onto the water.

Alternatively, there is parking available in the Riverside Carpark on the opposite side of the canal where there is a large, grassed area next to the canal.

Please do not park in the Coach Park behind Hilliers Garden Centre or on the road as this will incur a parking fine. We will try to accommodate trailers in the event area and, if necessary, double park.
