Up for a challenge in 2017? Register for the iconic North Queensland races now!

Register for the 7th Barron River Challenge (50km) (Register BRV 50) and for the 12km or 20km race (Register BRC 12/20) to be held on the 6th/7th of May 2017.

Online registrations are closed for the Gregory race, but you can register on the day.

With the Gregory River Canoe Marathon only 1 week away,  there has been an onslaught of paddlers heading to Gregory hoping to get their favourite camping spots.  Paddlers from as far as Victoria and New South Wales are making the long trek, as well as the regular paddlers from the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Atherton tablelands.

Online registrations are looking great and  with registrations still being taken on the day the North West Canoe Club are expecting paddler numbers to hit 100 plus.  The North West Canoe Club have spent the week searching for Canadians and sit-on-top plastic kayaks to allow a number of beginners to experience their first Gregory River Canoe Marathon.

With the cooler nights finally arriving and the sun still shining brightly during the day, it is bound to be an awesome long weekend.
