Event notes
Welcome to the Burley Griffin 24HR Paddle Challenge .....with a new option for 2020.....the 24-8HR introduced after last year's successfully interrupted race.

The Burley Griffin 24HR Paddle Challenge, run over 24 hours, is open to paddlers 15 years or older, in all craft, and can be paddled Solo or as a relay in Teams of varying sizes. Juniors who are not yet 15 years old at the start of the event may enter, but are NOT permitted to commence a lap of the course between 7:30pm & 6:30am.

You can take a serious approach and compete for the Distance/Time Trophies in either the Solo or Serious Relay categories, or you can get a few mates together to have fun and see how far you can go in 24 hours (or 16 hours) as a Fun Relay team.

Solo categories cater for Singles (1 paddler maximum) and Doubles (2 paddlers maximum) craft only.
Relay Teams (Serious) competing for the maximum distance trophy can have from 2 to a maximum of 4 paddlers.
