Wairau Express Kayak Race

17 09 2012

The Marlborough Triathlon and Multisport Club is holding it’s second Wairau Express in early November.

The “Wairau Express” is being held on the 4th of November 2012 and is sure to quickly becoming 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. With very few down river races on the calendar, why not check this one out.

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.
