BRC12 Junior and Open
Cancelled from 2019.
The Junior BRC12 has been an important race from our beginning in 2011. Students from 14 to 18 years of age enjoyed paddling the 12 km section of the Barron river between Mareeba and Biboohra for 8 years. The 2019 BRC12 was cancelled due to high water levels. Experienced junior paddlers completed the BRC20. This format was successful and has been adopted by the BRC committee.
This section of the river is classified as Grade 1 Moving Water and all junior competitors are required to be competent at paddling at this level. Students from the local area are welcome to attend training (see training page). Those from further afield may benefit from training sessions run by professionals.
