This is our final and the longest race in the 2014 – 2015 Be Active Marathon Season. The race also serves as grading race for the Avon Descent. During the race paddlers will paddle on the narrow winding sections of the upper regions of the Swan River and then progress downstream to the wider and more open parts. Paddlers are advised to make sure they have a good hydration system to use, a comfortable seat and being fit enough for the event. If in doubt choose the short course.

Long Course – 25 km – Start heading up stream to Barrett Street Footbridge, doing a tight 180 degree under the foot bridge and return downstream, passing under Middle Swan Bridge, Barkers Bridge, Guildford Bridge and leaving Ron Courtney Island on the left, pass under Redcliffe Bridge and doing another 180 degree turn at the spit-post just upstream of the new “Ascot Inn”. Head back upstream between the island and park, finishing at the Garvey Park Jetty.
