Gippsland Lakes Marathon Paddle

With the last Sup Vic event having been run for 2012/13, it’s now time to focus on our Autumn/Winter events. The first one is the Gippsland Lakes Marathon. A multi-discipline event which includes SUP and surf skis, ocean racing skis, sea kayaks, outrigger canoes, sit on top kayaks and expedition sea kayaks, it is sure to be a spectacle.  Not one for the faint-hearted, with a 27km and 13km course, but certainly one to aim for, train for and challenge yourself. So put it your diaries, keep it free and keep training. RPS and Sup Vic are both keen sponsors of this event.

A new race opportunity is a Maribyrnong River race event on 28th April as part of Canoeing Victoria’s Winter Series.

Entry fee is $20 for Adults, $13 for Students and $10 for Under 18s but there is an additional fee of $10 as non members of Canoeing Victoria. There is no need to pre-register – we can simply turn up on the day and enter.
