Sunday 3rd October – Marathon race at Manvers near Rotherham

We are taking entries for the Manvers marathon but, due to the weed closing our club, you need to get your entry to Graham either by email ( ) or phone (01724 721921) ASAP.

The race is on a lake and will provide competition for all levels of ability.

Even our newest pointy boat paddlers can join in the fun. This is a perfect opportunity for “marathon newbies”.

A number of our younger paddlers have been before (see below)

Can you name this “paddler”?

There are plenty of opportunities for spectators including an on-site cafe.
