No Paddle Challenge in 2022

Unfortunately, today we have to confirm that the 2022 Batemans Bay Paddle Challenge WILL NOT go ahead.

The Organising Committee wishes to advise that we have faced numerous challenges in preparing for this year’s event, and that the combination of the ongoing construction and remedial works at Korners Park (event location), the construction of the new bridge at Nelligen (the alternate event location) and the impact of recent floodwaters and the associated debris now in the river, have made it impossible for us to deliver an event to the standard that we’ve come to enjoy.

Participate: We invite everyone from beginners to the elite paddlers to join us in a full range of paddling races. We have something for all paddling vessels types.

Challenge:  There is nothing like a Challenge so join the Batemans Bay Paddle Challenge and join one of the 3 race classes. The Marathon 26km,  The 13km ½ course or even the 6km Paddle Dash. Whatever your level, whatever your motivation, be a part of it and enjoy the challenge in the company of like-minded people.

Watch: Set on the shoreline of Batemans Bay, sit back and enjoy the race start and finish and watch the spectacle unfold.

Enjoy: For those not competing come and join us on the Clyde River foreshore in front of the BIG 4 Batemans Bay Easts Riverside Park. Cheer on the paddlers or throw in a line while enjoying a coffee and a snack.
