The Berg River Canoe Marathon

The Ultra Paddle 2021

After the success of the first year of the Ultra-Paddle, forged as a virtual alternative for the cancelled 2020 Berg River Canoe Marathon, we are creating a virtual Ultra-Paddle over the course of the physical Berg this year!
This Ultra-Paddle will be slightly different to past virtual events, where we are going to require paddlers to complete the EXACT same distances on the same dates as the Berg!
As a mirror to the physical event, we want those who can’t travel to Paarl for the start on the 7th of July to be able to soak up the Challenge of Ultra-Paddling and put themselves to the test against the distance of the Berg!
More info about the Ultra-Paddle to be released shortly.
