2020 VIRTUAL GREGORY
A once in a lifetime opportunity. A chance to go down in history. The chance to paddle the Gregory at home, on your own body of water.
What will your Gregory look like? Will you be paddling on the ocean, river or lake?
In 1km sprints or one long day out on the water?
Will you be the youngest or the oldest paddler clocking up 40km of paddling?
TIME TO EMBRACE THE COVID-19 SITUATION AND REACH FOR A GOAL!
As you are aware, on the 18 March 2020, the Local Disaster Management Committee of the Burke Shire put the shire into lock down and banned ALL gatherings of more than 10 people.
The Burke Shire has an extremely vulnerable population due to their demographics and lack of access to health care.
It was therefore necessary for the North West Canoe Club to postpone the 45th Gregory River Canoe Marathon and throw a little extra fun into your month of May 2020.
All you need to do is register and email us details of how you paddled the 40km of our Virtual Gregory. Once you have completed the distance, we shall forward by Australia Post, or deliver to you, the impressive 45th Gregory River Marathon merchandise - t-shirt, hat and stubby cooler.
We are still hopeful to hold the Gregory River Canoe Marathon on Sunday, 4th October (Queens Birthday weekend in Queensland). If you are able to, keep that weekend free for a glorious time out of isolation, at the Gregory River.
If you do register for the 2020 Virtual Gregory and can also join us in October, (fingers crossed), we shall deduct the $60.00 from your registration fee and still provide you with a competitors race pack, less the merchandise already received.
If you are in awe of the merchandise this year, (and who wouldn't be), don't forget to select the purchase of our 45th Gregory Mug. This limited edition, will look great in the camping kit for the Gregory River in October 2020 or May 2021.
Stay safe and well and keep paddling.
