Marathon paddling will appeal to people of all ages, who like to keep fit.
It is low impact and great for a total body workout. Marathon racing can be over different distances, from as little as 5km, up to more than 100 kilometres. That’s why they call it ‘Marathon’!
The PaddleNSW Marathon Series is a series of races held throughout NSW and hosted by affiliated Clubs on their own waterways. It is a great way to meet new friends, paddle with mates and to see NSW in peaceful water surrounds. Marathon series events are held all over the state, taking paddlers to new towns or unexplored corners of well known cities. The PaddleNSW Marathon Series caters for paddlers of all ages and skills, allowing paddlers to choose from race distances of 5, 10, 15 or 20kms – and within time ‘divisions’ to suit their current experience.
