The annual SSCC 5Km Time Trial series is a fun cub paddling event, run on the Woronora River. Adults paddle a 5Km loop course. Juniors have the option to paddle a 5,2 or 1Km course.
This is intended as a ‘fun’ event, and paddlers of all craft and ages are encouraged to enter. Doubles entries can be any combination of gender/ages.
All races are assigned a handicap by the timekeepers.
Race 1, The Laurendet Cup is named in honour of our much loved SSCC Life Members Kaye and Bert Laurendet. Kaye is also a Life Member of PaddleNSW.
Race 10, the final race of the annual series, The Morison Cup, is named in honour of SSCC Life Members, Joan Morison (OAM) and Bruce Morison (OMA). The couple was involved in the sport for more than 65 years as pioneer competitors and administrators. They were founding members (and life members) of the peak national and state bodies for canoeing and were affiliated with state, Australian and International Olympic councils and the International Canoe Federation.
All entries close at midnight on the Thursday before the event.
The start list and handicaps will be emailed out on the Friday night before the race.
The Junior 1K and 2K TT starts at the beach in front of the clubhouse at 08:00. The start time will be confirmed in an email to the competitors.
All 5K TT competitors should be in the start area at 08:30am on Sunday. Competitors start at 08:30 plus their handicap: eg. a 12 minute handicap means the racer starts at 08:42.
Subject to Covid restrictions, SSCC will host a BBQ at the clubhouse after the event.
The entry fee includes a BBQ after the race.
The entry fee is not charged when you buy you ticket in Justgo, it is payable on the day in cash. Please bring the correct money.
Registration for a SSCC Time Trial is via the JustGo system (formally known as GoMembership).
Club members will be sent the JustGo link when registration opens.
Non-club members should send an email to email@example.com BEFORE midnight on the Thursday before the race.
Please don’t email individual club members or ‘tell’ someone that you’re racing. Entries must be received in the JustGo by midnight on the Thursday before the event (same as for PaddleNSW events) as the volunteer Timekeepers need time to prepare the Start List.
The start list and handicaps will be published on the Friday before race.
