The countdown to 50 Miler has begun!

50 Miler 2016

We have an exciting new 1 day race format lined up for this iconic event!
Due to some severe drought years we decided to look at a new race route that would allow us to make better use of the available water release option from Henley Dam and provide paddlers with a great on river experience as well.

So we are happy to announce the new route of Geoff’s Road to Mfula Store. This is a 40km section covering some of our absolute favourite rapids as well as some portages to help up those fitness levels! The upside of holding this as a 1 day event is that it is now a B grade river race and can be used to obtain those vital qualifying points.
In usual Umzinyathi style, we will still have marshals and NSRI divers located at all major rapids to assist with safety and helping show you the best lines. This allows the race to cater for all levels of paddler ability from novice through to the racing snakes... Not to be missed!
