Myall Classic Paddling Ultramarathon

8am 47km start

Date:  Saturday 17 September 2016.

The Myall Classic is a major ultramarathon event on the NSW paddler’s calendar. It is held on the Myall River at Tea Gardens each September on the last Saturday before the school holidays, taking both competitive and recreational paddlers paddlers up the Myall River and return.

There are a range of distances and starting times, intended to see all paddlers complete their chosen course by early afternoon, and in time for Presentations at 2:45pm.

Distances offered are 12km, 27km and 47km, the longer course being a perfect shakedown for the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic held in late October.PNSW Myall Gary Roberts1

Due to its protected nature, the Myall Classic is a safe, scenic though testing event in the largely unspoilt Great Lakes Marine Park. Conditions can vary considerably though the usual scenario presents paddlers with clear blue skies and warm weather. A light Easterly breeze is usually present in the early afternoon.

Due to overwhelming demand (OK, so one SUP paddler requested it), a full distance 47km option will be created for SUP's. An 8am start is required, and paddlers still need to be confident they can meet the cutoff times for the distance. (See the regulations on the event website).

Many thanks to Anjie Lees, who has created the website and chased off the naughty hackers who are up to no good. Hopefully they will stay away now for a little longer.
The old race results page will hopefully reappear soon too.
The race looms....GET EXCITED!

Looking forward to the 2016 Myall Classic. 17th September. We're developing a new website specially for the event, and will publish details here when it goes live.
In the meantime, now's the time to plan your training schedule, Build up to some 30km paddles in the weeks leading up to the 47km event. That's great Hawkesbury Canoe Classic prep.
No need for such diligence if you're doing the shorter distances. You can also do a shorter HCC distance this year too...just 65km to Wisemans.
