THE FNB DUSI SEASON IS UPON US
Join us for one of the most important FNB Dusi Canoe Marathon front row seeding races
THE OZZIE GLADWIN CANOE MARATHON!

The Ozzie Gladwin Canoe Marathon, one of South Africa's premier one day canoe marathon's, always attracts the top FNB Dusi Canoe Marathon contenders and 2017 will be no different as K2 combinations try to find their feet against the best in the country.

The race this year will follow the K2 format with the 2018 Dusi being a K2 event and Albert Falls Dam will provide the perfect backdrop for one of the most exciting early season showdowns!

Starting on Albert Falls Dam, the Ozzie Gladwin takes paddlers along a 4km flat water lap before they run a short 1km portage around the dam wall and then get back into their boats for 21km of paddling fun on the upper uMngeni River that winds down to the finish line at Thornvale Farm on the Wartburg Road.

Date: Sunday, 26 November 2017
Venue:
Albert Falls Dam & upper uMngeni River
Distance:
26km
Format:
K2

The event will also incorporate the ever-popular Guppy race. This race will see hundreds of excited young paddlers take on a course especially designed for them on the Albert Falls Dam.

The 2017 Ozzie Gladwin Canoe Marathon takes place from Albert Falls Dam to Thornvale Farm on Sunday 26 November. More information can be found at www.ozziegaldwin.co.za.
