The 23nd edition of N3TC Drak Challenge Canoe Marathon will take place on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 January 2016, over 65km of the Upper Umzimkulu River from Castleburn Bridge to Early Mists Farm near Coleford.
The hugely popular event, which is a month before the Dusi Canoe Marathon, attracts around 1000 paddlers to Underberg eager to enjoy the clean river, technical challenges of the numerous steep alpine rapids and the breathtaking scenery of the Southern Drakensberg.
The N3TC Drak Challenge has snowballed in popularity in recent years and attracts large numbers of supporters and family members keen to enjoy the wide range of leisure pursuits and tourists attractions in the region.
The N3TC Drak Challenge 2016 starts on 23 January at Castleburn Bridge outside Underberg and finishes on 24 January at Early Mists Farm close to Coleford.
