Flatwater Sprint 


Sprint racing involves paddling as fast as you can in a straight line over a short distance. 

These races are set in ability categories or occasionally in age groups, male and females usually race separately.

Distances include 200m, 500m, 1000m, 2k and 5k.

Sprint races at the moment are held at HPP in Nottingham, 4 or 5 times through the year,  but there is a drive to have more 'regional' or club sprint events.
