Paddlers entering for their first race in a PNSW Marathon Series, and any paddler wanting to enter anything other than the Division they last raced in, or were assigned to, should choose one of the "Ranking" race Divisions. (unless entering in Divisions 1, 8, or 9)This race will be run under the normal Divisional Racing format (Divisions 1 – 13) with some minor changes to accommodate this as a Doubles Round & State Doubles Championships:-
- Regular Doubles combos should enter their regular Division
- New Doubles combos are not required to complete a ranking race but must enter one Division faster than the fasted ranked paddler (e.g. if a Div 3 paddler pairs with a Div 4, they should enter Div 2 for this round)
- Entries will be reviewed by the Marathon Committee and ‘Fair Play’ adjustments may be applied
- Division 1 will race 25km (self-promote if you wish)
- Mandatory portage for Division 1 on the mid-river sandbar at Fig Tree Bridge on the return from bottom turn (2 x portages for 25km distance).
