Event notes


WELCOME, ALL COMERS. . This is our 5th year and each year we work at making this event better than the year before. This year you have a choice of 3 entry options. You can register
1. Full Distance - The iconic Clarence 100 (actually 105.7km) where you paddle each stage of each day in full (in single, double or multi person craft).
2. Relay option, where a team of two persons in single craft OR 4 persons in double craft must paddle 3 of the 6 legs of the race. (each stage has 2 legs). Paddle every day but halve the distance.
3. Social - Where you paddle any OR all of the three stages in a single, double, or multi-person craft. Social paddlers start half hour prior to competitive paddlers .

All paddlers must complete the registration process whether individual or part of a team.

This event is suited to fast paddling craft. Please ensure you enter with this in mind.
Our philosophy has and always will be, take the paddle serious but bring a casual attitude. Throughout the weekend there are great opportunities to enjoy local hospitality establishments and we encourage you to take advantage of this. Get to know your fellow paddlers and have a great time.
This event is a non commercial venture and our aim through your participation is to give back to the community. We do this by providing financial support to Junior sporting communities associated with the Clarence River that provide support to our event.
Every entry gets an event shirt and or hat plus lunch is provided at presentation. Early bird entry discount applies from June 1st until August 31st. Updates and forum are provided through Facebook page and group.Please follow these regularly and share to others

We hope to see you there
