Marathon Paddle Racing
Marathon paddling is an exceptional way to develop both strength and aerobic capacity. It is a safe, low-impact, high-aerobic sport, and a great way to develop upper body and core strength. The sport has a significant technical component that is sure to test your canoeing technique, river knowledge and navigation skills. Over time, racers develop the ability to read different water conditions to both avoid obstacles and seek out the fastest water.
In marathon paddling, knowledge is as important as muscle strength and this makes it a sport where all ages and sexes can excel. Paddlers who take the time to develop both fitness and technical skills not only enjoy hours spent on the water but are also rewarded with a strong sense of accomplishment.
Ontario Marathon Canoe Kayak Racing Association (OMCKRA) is the Provincial Ontario Sport Organization (PSO) for the sport of Marathon Canoe and Kayak Racing and is a member of the Marathon Canoe Racing Council (MCRC) of Canoe Kayak Canada (CKC) and is the Marathon discipline of Canoe Kayak Ontario (CKO). Check out our parent associations by clicking on their logos.
Both CKC and CKO are made up of the paddling disciplines of Sprint, Whitewater, and Marathon Canoe Racing. Check out our sister disciplines in Ontario by clicking on their logos.
OMCKRA is honoured to be supported by the Ontario Government Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
