The countdown to 50 Miler has begun!


The excitement is mounting for the Lettie Paddle 50 Miler on 6 & 7 December 2014! This iconic canoe marathon is a favourite amongst paddlers. Taking in all the best sections of Dusi with but with more paddling options and less portaging, it appeals to both professional paddler and novice alike.

This year hosts Umzinyathi Canoe Club decided to headline the race with NPO charity Lettie Paddle. Sadly we had to say goodbye to Lettie Heyns earlier this year but her memory lives on. All proceeds raised in the Charity Batch bidding this year will go towards helping young cancer victim Jordan to be fitted with a prosthetic leg. To bid for your spot in the nice early charity batch, see . To find out more about brave young Jordan, go to!/jordansmiraclejourney

A huge shout out to our sponsors! This year we welcome on board new sponsors Cartime and Bell Equipment. Grateful thanks, without your support this race would not be possible! Thanks also to Kayak Centre, ADD Resins, Tripper for kitting Danica Bartho out, Brand Brewery for logo design and Easy2Access for our Umzinyathi and 50 Miler website hosting. Watch out for this pink boat on the river and show her your support!
