K2 National Champioships Race Notice – 25th Aug
K2 National Championship
This event is paired as a double header with the SLCC Marathon Ranking Race which runs on Sat 24th. Due to very low turnout to K2 National Championships in recent years we are trying something new this year. All races will run on a short course format over a 5k course which consists of 2 X 2.5k laps with a new race running each hour.
It would be greatly appreciated if any paddlers who own a K2 would consider making it available to borrow by other paddlers (particularly Juniors) to increase participation as much as possible.
A single entry fee per paddler of €10 for senior & €5 for Juniors cover entry into as many races as a paddler wishes to race.
Registration opens at 09:30 at SLCC
