The History of the RMCC Rookie Race

This 16km race offers a high intensity paddle experience and the opportunity to learn from others in a group environment. Creek paddling is challenging due to the meandering river flow, the changing depth conditions and the effects of waves generated from boats and the river bed. The event start and finish locations may change every year based on current water flows. Group paddles may begin upstream from Craven, upstream from Lumsden or downstream from Lumsden.

This event is catered for paddlers of all ages and introductory marathon paddling abilities.
