Steve Skinner memorial Canal Kayak Race.

This race is part of the Meridian Hard Labour Weekend events.

It is a unique race encompassing Lake Ruataniwha and the Hydro canals finishing in Lake Benmore.
There are two portages to negotiate to add to the fun over the 19 km distance.

This is the only time that the canals are open to be used by the public and the race can be followed by spectators over much of its distance.

It can be entered either as a stand-alone race or as part of the Hard Labourer event that makes up the three events held over the weekend.

The others being the Dusty trail 40 km Mt bike ride held directly after the kayak or the Pyramid half marathon held on Sunday.

Competitors must be 16 or over to entry the kayak race but there are events for the juniors in the MTB and the run events so a great weekend for the whole family.

Over $20,000 worth of spot prizes on offer over all the events.
