Entrants canoeing at the 2018 Dusi

South Africa’s most iconic canoeing event, the FNB Dusi Canoe Marathon, is just three months away and the nation’s top athletes have already commenced their intensive training programmes ahead of the much anticipated 2019 K1 clash.

The Dusi will be taking place from 14 February to 16 February, starting at Camps Drift in Pietermaritzburg and finishing at Blue Lagoon in Durban.

For the hundreds outside of the first century of paddlers though, the three days on the Msundusi and Mngeni Rivers and pathways of the spectacular Valley of a Thousand Hills is far more than just a race. It’s an adventure.

Lifelong memories and friendships have been formed throughout the previous 66 editions of the renowned paddling event with the sense of achievement upon crossing the finish line.

There are various stages and distances, stage one – 42km, stage two – 48km and stage three – 36km.
