Canoe Marathon

Canoe Marathon is a tough, endurance-based discipline; competitors race over distances up to 30km and are required to use every bit of tactical knowledge and energy they have to win their race. Races often include a portage where competitors are required to get out of their boat and run with it for 50-200m as part of the race.

Any type of canoe or kayak can be used in a marathon, however at ICF level events specific single and double canoes and kayaks are required; the design requirements of these boats are the same as that of Canoe Sprint with different minimum boat weight requirements.
