Myall Classic Paddling Ultramarathon

Anzac Park

Saturday 21 September 2019.

The Myall Classic is a major ultramarathon event on the NSW paddlers 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 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 2:15pm.

Distances offered are 12km, 27km and 47km, the longer course being a perfect shakedown for the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic held in late October. A special ‘Students Challenge Trophy’ race is also offered, with its own special start time. See the event info on the entry page link to Webscorer.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.

Okay, enough of the silent treatment. Lets make some noise about the new Myall add-ons this year.
You will see a new event held alongside the race. It's called Paddle Scrabble. Check out for all the details.
A more relaxed, environmentally aware competition of a different nature.
On Saturday evening come along to the Paddle Film Festival, hosted by Lazy Paddles, your local paddling business. A full featured programme of new releases. See them first here. Film tickets available very soon.
Sunday, enjoy a paddle with friends downstream...there's so much to see.

Entries are open!
Get in early before the bird, or with the bird, or just ignore the bird altogether. If the bird gets there first, it'll cost you more.

Found after the race:
1x lifejacket and 1x spray deck. Probably from a Uni team boat. May have been deliberately left in the park.
