Cradock set to host K1 champs
The 31st edition of the Hansa Fish Canoe Marathon in Cradock will host the SA K1 River Championships title decider in October.
The race on October 5 and 6 will see undefeated K1 champion Len Jenkins back to try and retain his title at the Hansa Fish and in the process clinch the SA K1 title, the race organisers announced on Thursday.
Michéle Eray would make her return to the race after being laid low last year by a crippling wrist injury.
"The Hansa Fish is the country's premier canoe marathon," said SA Breweries Eastern Cape events manager Riaan van Jaarsveld.
"More than that, it has all the special ingredients that make it a truly unique ‘total experience' where the visitors to Cradock can enjoy the warmth of the local hospitality, race hard, and really enjoy themselves off the water."
