CSM: Montebello Tour — August 25 and 26, 2018


An endurance challenge for scullers

Since 2005, the rowing section of the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club (ONEC) has organized an annual distance challenge using touring, coastal, and open water shells on the Ottawa River: the Canadian Sculling Marathon (CSM). Inspired by the world-renowned Canadian Ski Marathon, it stresses participation, fitness, endurance and fun!

A distance event under the banner of the Ontario Adventure Rowing Association, the CSM usually offers a choice of a full marathon (42 km) or a half marathon (21 km) with a circuit starting and finishing at the ONEC boathouse and taking in some of the capital’s most famous landmarks.

In 2018, exceptionally, the CSM circuit will be replaced by a two-day sanctioned tour from Ottawa to Montebello in touring and coastal shells, a distance of over 42 km, on August 25 and 26.

CSM: 10 km Open — Saturday, August 18, 2018

The 2018 CSM 10 km Challenge will be held on Saturday, August 18th at 8:00.

This is an Open event for ONEC members and guests. The event is free to members. Guests are asked to pay a $10 one-day membership fee.

This challenge is open to scullers of all levels and open to all shells. Come in a single, join up in a double or quad. The challenge is to row around Kettle Island in your best time.

Please arrive at 7:15 to register at the door and be on the water at 7:45. Join us in the ballroom afterwards for snacks and prizes. All participants will receive a pin. T-shirts will be for sale ($15 or $16).
