Frank Luzmore Marathon Course Change

The Frank Luzmore race will run this weekend on an alternative course on the Grand Union Canal from Brentford to Bull’s Bridge and back.

This decision has been taken following a course inspection carried out today and is primarily due to the difficult river conditions which have unfortunately persisted into this week.

We could have run a restricted race for those ranked in the upper Hasler divisions only, but feel this would have had a detrimental effect on the race. Instead we believe the new course offers a safe but challenging event that is suitable for all. The Grand Union canal is a broad canal and thanks to the generous support of the Canal and River Trust we have been able to put this alternative programme together.

Full details are available on the Richmond Races page.

There are 54 crews entered already. If you have not done so already then you can send your entries to marathon@richmondcanoeclub.com. In light of the course change we will now accept entries up to 5pm on Friday 4th January.
