Do you need an adventure this Christmas and want to get fit?

Come join the YMCA Murray Marathon Fire Brigade team in this year’s iconic five day canoe race and compete in the inaugural Emergency Services Challenge Cup.

The fireys' team is already in training in Albury but more paddlers are needed to fill the team.

The YMCA Murray Marathon is the longest canoe/kayak race in the southern hemisphere and 2013 will be the 45th race.

The 2012 event attracted more than 400 paddlers and 1,500 associated ground crew moving along the Murray River between Yarrawonga and Swan Hill for five days between Boxing Day and New Years’ Day. More information is available on the YMCA website -
