Join host Andi van Zyl in South Africa for one of the toughest canoe races in the world! The Dusi Canoe Marathon famously pits competitors against powerful rapids and unpredictable wildlife, and the 2014 edition will feature SUP riders for the first time in the event’s history.
One of the most physically testing competitions is coming soon to Nautical Channel. The Dusi Canoe Marathon is a one of a kind canoe and running endurance race set in the magnificent South African Drakensberg hills and rapids. Follow this years edition as some of the fittest men and women single handedly row the 120 km river and run over the hills carrying their custom built canoes over their shoulders. Who will come first in this prestigious African event?
The 2017 edition of the FNB Dusi Canoe Marathon, raced over three days from Pietermaritzburg to Durban on the East Coast of South Africa is always tough paddling and portaging. With the country in the grips of the two year long drought, it became a whole lot tougher. Low rivers and searing hot weather, and the final stage raced on an empty river! Some of the best river marathoners in the world fought out what became a riveting contest for the 65th Dusi titles.
