Following the spike in Covid-19 cases in KwaZulu-Natal and around the country, organisers of the Dusi Canoe Marathon and representatives from Canoeing South Africa have decided to postpone the race by a month to March 18-20 2021.

Given the emergency meeting of the National Command Council on Wednesday, CSA and the MyLife Dusi organising committee felt they needed to make a quick decision to reassure paddlers that the event will still take place this year.

“With the current regulations and the serious situation in the province we have to postpone the race,” event organiser Shane Le Breton said.

Paddlers’ safety

“Our main priority has always been the safety of our paddlers and given the current situation we felt that we had no other option.

“It’s our responsibility to adhere to all the current governmental guidelines and that means we will welcome paddlers to the start of the 2021 MyLife Dusi on 18 March.”
