The Wairau Express – Marlborough’s newest kayak race

6 09 2011

The Marlborough Triathlon and Multisport Club is adding a new kayak race to the calendar.

The “Wairau Express” is being held on the 6th of November 2011 and is sure to quickly become a favourite among kayakers and multisporters looking for that early season hit out before the big Waimak Classic, Lake to light house, Coast to Coast and numerous other multisport races throughout the summer.

It will be a classic double header weekend with many people from around the Tasman region and beyond all lining up for the prestigious Queen Charlotte Classic being held the day before in Picton.

With a cash prize up for grabs for the first open man and woman across the line there promises to be plenty of action on the water.

The Wairau Express starts at the “narrows”, 12km from Renwick on State Highway 63 and finishes under the State Highway 1 bridge near Tuamarina. A total distance of approximately 28km.

Entries are now open, come claim your piece of the Wairau.

The Wairau Express is supported by The Marlborough Express, Peak Fuel, Hawkesbury Road Clothing and the Cornerstone Bar
