The 2019 August Bank Holiday was officially the hottest on record.  Despite the extreme heat, Alex Whearity, the hot favourite for the Men’s Canalslam Title with two wins already in the bag, stuck to his “no-sitting” plan, to claim a new series record, as well as his third win.

Not to be outdone on a weekend of records, Roz Glover, who “only” had to finish to make the Ladies’ Canalslam hers, pressed on to take well over two hours off Fiona’s fastest time for the series.

The Team at Canalrace C.I.C. wish to congratulate all those who finished the Canalslam, and thank all competitors in this season’s races, whether successful or otherwise, for taking part. We also wish to express our gratitude to the crews who volunteered their time to make these events possible (and fun!) Your support is very much appreciated throughout our community.  Thank you very much indeed.
