Non-stop blistering heat was not enough to stop Alex Whearity claiming his third Canalrace win of the season in 22 hours and 55 minutes, taking the 2019 Canalslam title and setting the new accumulated time record. Louise Smart remained cool to win her first Canalrace C.I.C. event in 28 hours and 30 minutes. Congratulations to all finishers.

Official results can be found here and the updated Hall of Fame here.

59 Starters. 36 Finishers.
