Distance Challenge Results

Dmitri Tsvetkov knocked out 17.73 km over 2 hrs to claim what we believe is his first Canadian Paddle League title (applause) in what is arguably the toughest event. Sylvain St-Cyr has proven to be an endurance monster and was right on his tail, while Ryan Cuthbert claimed third spot.

Danielle took another one here, with Wendy Tillett and Megan Sheppard rounding out the podium. Tremendous efforts.

Rob Kavcic almost cracked to 20 km mark in his OC1, and Ian Hu and Sharon Purdy continue to grind it out prone. Anyone that has spent 2+ hours paddling prone knows this is no joke!

From the water

We love seeing the photos of your virtual racing… keep them coming! Half the fun of this league is sharing and seeing where everyone paddles. There are some really beautiful spots out there!
