Welcome to the 2021 Frank Harrison Memorial race. The FH race first ran in the 1980s as an alternative event to the Australian Marathon Champs for paddlers who were unable to travel to Perth. This year, in the absence of Marathon nationals, the FH race will again be run as an interstate event. Points will be awarded (100 points per class, with 1st 50, 2nd 30 and 3rd 20), with the winning state taking home the "Frank Harrison Interstate Marathon Cup".

There are two races over two days, with singles on Saturday and doubles on Sunday (you may paddle whatever boat you want on either day, however, only singles earn points on Saturday, etc.). You may enter one or both days. Standard entries close 8 pm, 25 March. Late entries (+$10) close 5 pm, 26 March.

Wearing an approved Life Jacket / PFD (Personal flotation device) is mandatory for this event.
