Welcome to The
If you are reading about this race, you are obviously looking to
challenge yourself to the highest degree. So let’s see what you are
really made of?
The Non-Stop may have originated from very humble and unstructured
beginnings; however, the event has quickly evolved into an event that
every extreme endurance athlete wants to participate in. With this
increased popularity, so come additional pressures on organizing the
event and allowing paddlers to enter.
Prior to 2012, the rules for qualifying and completing the race had
been relaxed. In order to return the event to its original extreme
status, we have reinstated the original cut off times that were in
place at the origin of the event.
We have brought back the
Finger Neck cut off of 4 hours from the start time, and the dam Wall
cut off that we reintroduced last year of 2.30pm will again be in
place. These cut offs will not be relaxed in any way, regardless of
the river or weather conditions.
We are hoping that all paddlers who participate in this event will
cherish their achievements and recognize the Non-Stop as the World’s
Toughest One Day Canoe marathon.
We look forward to seeing you on the startline at dawn on raceday!
Train Hard and race easy.
