Massive Murray Paddle remains on track

By Brayden May

THE Massive Murray Paddle (MMP) remains on track to go ahead later this year.

The event is scheduled to start in Yarrawonga on Sunday, November 15 as participants track up the Murray River in the 404 km five-day event.

Competitors are expected to arrive at Moama beach on Wednesday, November 18.

“At this stage the MMP will be running as planned. SHK and Phase Zero are committed to making sure this will be a special event,” a post said on the event’s Facebook page.

“Of course, there is a chance that the restrictions will still be imposed, however we hope that there are some clear skies in 100 days’ time.

“We are still accepting entries and have 220 paddlers entered. Please only enter if you have read and agree to the terms of conditions and refund policy.”

Organisers said this year’s event would look very different in terms of the schedule.

Day zero, which was supposed to take place at Yarrawonga, will now be based online with paddler packs to only to be provided to team captains.

Meanwhile, there will be no crowds allowed at checkpoints and no presentation ceremony will take place on the final day.
