The 9th Barron River Challenge was held on the 1st/2nd of June 2019.
The challenge is a 50km/30/20/ or 12km* paddle down the Barron River from Mareeba to Kuranda.
(* the 12km race was intended for students and beginner/intermediate paddlers. The river level was ‘Mareeba 1.95m’ which was considered too high for beginner paddlers. Immediate paddlers were encouraged to enter the BRC20 in 2019)
THE BRC12 was NOT AN OPTION in 2019. The BRC20 course is ideal for SUP paddlers however at this level they would be disappointed that they did not enter the BRC20.
One registration button will enter you or your team in the the 4 race distances.
