Fun for all ages and types of canoe

Marathon Canoeing Racing is fun and may be enjoyed by people of all ages in any type of canoe.  In recent season, paddlers from 6 years to over 70 years of age have taken part.

Marathon Racing boats are designed to travel fast in a straight line and are therefore are narrower and less stable than many other types of canoe.  They come in single and double types.  For under 12 year old paddlers clubs have Lightning Kayaks that are smaller and more stable which allows these young paddlers to develope their skills on an equal footing.

Scotland has a variety of water, much of it is situated amongst some of Britain's most beautiful scenery.

Centre of Excellence at the Lowport Centre in Linlithgow is used extensively for competition and training events throughout the year.  It has been operating there since its opening in 1997.

Marathon Distances

Marathon racing in Scotland takes place over distances from 4 to 54 miles on all types of water from lowland canals to lochs, rapid rivers and estuaries.  The racing season runs from March through to October with events most weekends and some weekday evenings.  Paddlers from Scotland have regularly taken part in the British National and Hasler Trophy Marathon championships.  Most races are open to all paddlers, however organisers may restrict entries at races where there are potentially hazardous conditions.

Sprint & Marathon Equipment
The Sprint & Marathon Committee have a full range of boats & paddles which are loaned out – full details of the equipment and the loan arrangements can be found in the following link http://canoescotland.org/resources scroll down to the SCA Boats & Equipment tab at the bottom of the page

Safety Notice

1    All boats used in marathon racing must be fitted with sufficient buoyancy to support the boat and crew in the event of a capsize. Inherent buoyancy in composite boats is not sufficient to meet this requirement. Additional foam buoyancy or air bags must be fitted.
2    All paddlers who are ranked in divisions 7,8 or 9 must wear an approved buoyancy aid (compliant with EN 393, EN 395, ISO 12402-5 or ISO 12402-6) for all marathon races in K1 or K2. Organisers may require other competitors to also wear approved buoyancy aids if they feel that the conditions require it, so all competitors should come prepared to comply with this requirement.
3    Paddlers should also check individual race information sheets for any event specific safety requirements.

Results can be found on this link.

Marathon Calendar
