The Kelowna Paddle Centre and Vernon Paddling Centre are co-hosting CORA Spring Series Race #3 taking place from June 13 through June 26, 2021. Even though you will not be physically racing against dozens of other paddlers on the water, it does give you a little of the excitement of a race event with a chance to compare how you have placed against others and to challenge yourself to improve on your results. So find your paddle and PFD and get out on the water!
Any CORA member can and compete, providing you have a GPS watch or ERG computer to record your virtual race, and you have a valid 2021 CORA membership. Categories will be set up for V1, OC1 and OC2, C1, K1, surfski single and double, marathon canoe single and double, SUP, kayak, Concept2 erg, and KayakPro erg.
Registration will open on Sunday June 13 at 10 am (Pacific Time) and will close on Saturday, June 26 at 5:00 pm
You can complete and log your distance as many times as you wish between the date you register and 5:00 pm on Sunday, June 27. For competitors who log more than one result in a selected distance (e.g. 12 km), only the fastest time will be ranked and posted.
RACE formats for Spring V-Race #3:
After you register (which must be before 5:00 pm on Saturday June 26), you will be emailed a link to a data submission form. As well you will be provided with an email address to send a screenshot of your GPS or ERG result (time and distance).
All results (form submission and emailing of GPS results), must be submitted no later than Sunday, May 30 at 5:00 pm (Pacific Time). No submissions will be accepted after the 5:00 pm deadline.
Note that GPS distances must meet or exceed the distance in order to qualify.
The CORA Race Committee will sort results and determine leaderboard standings based on the fastest result from each athlete for each division. Results will be published on the Lotus and CORA websites the following week.
You can register to race as many times as you wish using the same equipment at no extra cost. You will need to pay a separate race fee if you wish to submit an entry using different equipment (e.g. you can race OC1 in both short and long courses for this race, but must purchase a separate registration if you also wish to compete in V1).
Participants must read and accept the waiver as per their age group and indicate this on the registration form.
Note that valid 2021 CORA memberships are required to participate in the winter series virtual races; paddlers can renew their CORA memberships by clicking here.
In the case of registering for any two person equipment (OC2, Surfski for 2, or Marathon canoe for 2) please process two completely separate registrations.
