Barron River Challenge
The 10th Barron River Challenge will be held on the 29/30th May 2021.
The challenge is a 50km/30/or 20 km* paddle down the Barron River from Mareeba to Kuranda.
(* a 12km race -the BRC12 was held for a number years and was intended for students and beginner/intermediate paddlers. The river level in 2019 was ‘Mareeba 1.95m’ which was considered too high for beginner paddlers. Immediate paddlers were encouraged to enter the BRC20 in 2019. The committee felt that this format was highly successful. THE BRC12 is NOT AN OPTION in 2021.)
The BRC20 course is ideal for SUP paddlers .
One registration button will enter you or your team in either of the 3 race distances.
Online registration will close on Thursday, 17th May, 2021 at 8:00pm. You must have made the online registration deadline to be eligible for random prizes.
There are accommodation options for paddlers staying overnight at Bilwon. All accommodation options are free and will include a free breakfast for paddlers (inexpensive for supporters). There are kitchen facilities if you wish to be self supported.
The Register button below will be operational by late March.
