The general consensus among all players at this year’s Dusi Canoe Marathon was that the race was very well organised, the water quality was good and the support crews outstanding – and as a result the race was enjoyed by competitors, spectators and organisers alike.
The Dusi Canoe Marathon, the biggest canoeing event on the African continent, takes place between the cities of Pietermaritzburg and Durban in KwaZulu-Natal. It covers about 120km along the Msunduzi and Umgeni rivers.
In 1973, three men – prevented by government-imposed fuel restrictions from travelling to East London to participate in the Buffalo Mile – swam the first Midmar Mile. Today, it’s the biggest open-water swim in the world.
