The Course - 30km
The race starts 500 metres above Northam Weir and winds its way downstream through channels covering the opening stages of Day 1 of the famous Avon Descent.
From Northam Weir to Katrine Bridge, the river is characterised by flat water and intermittent deep pools.
Two kilometres downriver from Katrine is Glen Avon Rapid, a small but tricky rapid.
After seven kilometres of coffee rock, Sinclair’s Crossing underneath Dumbarton Bridge presents a challenge with many channels that exist even in low water.
Not far downriver is Extracts Weir which is a COMPULSORY PORTAGE in this race. The river from Extracts to Toodyay is shallow with a gravel bed.


Age: Participants must be 16 years and over on the day of the race to be able to enter.
Race class constitution: Male - 4 craft to a class. Female - 3 craft to a class.
Open class will be constituted first in each craft class, and classes constituted by age thereafter.
If paddling a K2 choose the open age category if at least one paddler is between 19 and 35y.o (inclusive).
The race organisers reserve the right to combine craft to form a class.
For this event no place prizes are given, random draw prizes are done as soon as possible after the race finishes.
