Marathon and Sprint


Don’t forget our Marathon Sessions are on Saturday afternoons, on the water at 2:00pm, including this Saturday 26th June.


During this session you can post a sprint time to count towards our club sprint competition (you can also do this during Thursday night sessions). We have now had three weeks of sprints on Saturday (no one has yet attempted a sprint on Thursday)

Eight people have completed the course at least once and their best times are: 

Alexander           3 min 52

Charles               4 min 24

Connor                4 min 32

Edward                6 min 02

Lydia                    4 min 09

Martin                  3 min 55

Matilda                 6 min 10

Wayne                 3 min 53

All these times are in either full size marathon boats or Lightnings but any boat can be used.

Updated sprint times: Four plucky paddlers attempted to improve their sprint performance on Saturday 19th June.

  • Charles has still not beaten his best of 4 minutes 24 seconds
  • Connor managed to equal his best time of 4 minutes 32 seconds
  • Matilda did not have Edward to battle with this week and so her best time remains at 6 minutes 10 seconds
  • Lydia managed to shave 11 seconds off her best with an impressive 4 minutes 09 seconds

The stretch of river between the railway bridge and the club shed is still relatively weed-free so there is still the possibility for new records to be set.

Happy Paddling
