Irish Crews invade the land of Shaka Zulu – Extreme Canoe Marathon.

The 16th February 2017 saw the start of the legendary DUSI Canoe Marathon, which took place over three days and 125km of river and bush portages through the magnificent Valley of a Thousand Hills in KwaZulu Natal Provence, South Africa. The idea of racing down the uMsundusi and uMngeni Rivers was born during World War II when Dr. Ian Player, sitting with friends around an army campfire in Italy, proposed the idea of travelling by kayak from Pietermaritzburg to Durban. After an initial expedition was abandoned halfway in 1950, eight paddlers set off from Alexandra Park on 22 December 1951. Six days, 8 hours and 15 minute later, Dr. Player was the only paddler to finish, having survived two days of low rivers, a flash flood and a bite from a night adder. Ref: www.dusi.co.za. This unique race has taken place every year since and is now the subject to a movie ‘Beyond the River’, to be released in April 2017.
