HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANOERACEWORLD!!!


I cannot believe it has already been a full year since I decided to make the leap with the site and try to do something that has never been done before in the sport of marathon canoe racing. We have had a great year and have grown and expanded a bunch but there is much more to come so stay tuned!


Articles

Over the year we have published almost 80 articles on various topics. If you missed any of the them you can find all of them on our dedicated articles page HERE. When I started this, it was only me adding content to the site but now we have regular contributions from Ben Schlimmer, Bill Mahaffy, and Miranda Robinson. The variety of content that we have been able to produce has been really interesting from detailed race reviews all the way to baking articles, so I am confident that we probably have something that might interest you as long as canoe racing is one of your interests.


The Podcast

We also created the Canoeraceworld Podcast, where my co-host Bill Mahaffy and I discuss the current events in the racing world along with interviews from a variety of paddling guests. The podcast is just another way that we here at Canoeracworld look to innovate in canoe racing market, we want to be on the for-front of creating digital content that will help push our sport forward. The 8th and latest episode will be airing tonight at around 5pm with our guest Shawn Burke, the founder and auther of "The Science of Paddling. You can find the episode HERE and check out his articles HERE.

We have been very fortunate over the year to be able to give a select amount of Free Giveaways to our loyal fans. We have given out stickers and hats so far and are now looking to take our giveaways to the next level! In celebration for our anniversay, we are giving away a free Coxmate GPS unit!

Video Content

Over the next year you will be seeing a lot more video content from us here at CRW. I am personally filming a new series of videos chronicling my journey to this years Ausable River

Canoe Marathon. We have also upgraded some camera equipment so we can start to shoot videos from more interesting points of view to start producing more educational content that should really help those out there looking to step up their paddling game. We have also added team members that will also be contributing to the amount of video we can produce so we should have even more footage to take from and hopefully we can create some cool and interesting videos.


Team CanoeRaceWorld

Today at noon will be the official release of the this year's "Team CRW" This is a dedicated group of individuals that want to be ambassadors for the sport and share the same vision of pushing our sport forward through innovation in the digital era.
