What age group should you paddle in? The link below takes you to an extract of the ICF marathon rules.
Reference to age begins at the bottom of the first page. Essentially though, your category age is the age you turn on the year of competition.
If you turned 16 in April, you may compete in Under 16s even though you are now 17.
If you turn 45 in November, you may race in 45+ despite only being 44 on race day.
Additionally, Junior may elect to compete in older age groups up to Open. Open paddlers may only paddle Open. Veteran paddlers may elect to compete in a younger age group, down to Open.
