Due to COVID-19 the event organisers have performed a COVID-19 risk assessment and therefore some procedures may be different from previous years. Specifically: to minimise any large groups gathering on race day there will be no traditional formal briefing but a short safety update at the stated ‘briefing time’. All race course maps, briefing notes and safety details will be published on the MADCC website Adelphi Hasler race page alongside the race Flyer. Some copies of this information including course maps will be available on the day but the best source of the information will be our club racing web pages where all can individually view and digest the information in the comfort of your home or on a mobile device.


Results will be posted directly online at https://entries.gbcanoemarathon.co.uk/, there will be no paper copies.

We encourage all competitors and spectators to test before attending, and please do not attend the event if you have any COVID symptoms or had contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 7 days.

No boat will be deemed to be sufficiently buoyant purely as a result of its construction (e.g. vac bagged/ sandwich or other construction). Additional buoyancy is required in the form of foam, air bags and/or sealed bulkheads in order to make boats comply with buoyancy requirements. ALL LIGHTNING BOATS MUST BE FITTED WITH AIRBAGS. All boats will be checked to ensure they meet this requirement.
