Sprint Racing

Sprint kayak racing is very similar to sprint track racing. It is an Olympic discipline and races are run on a regatta course of 9 lanes. Paddlers compete in 200m, 500m and 1000m events in K1s, K2s and K4s.

Like marathon racing, these races are also seeded based on ability and, depending upon your speed, you are placed in groups A to D. As a beginner you start in group D and as you improve your times you move up through to group A.

Sprint regattas take place 5 times a year at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham, home and training ground of the Team GB Canoe Sprint Team.
