2020 ICF Masters Canoe Marathon World Championships
24 - 25 Aug 2020
ECA Junior Cup Races in 2019 will be reserved and prioritised for Home Nation U16 Development. The Head Coaches from the Home Nations will discuss and agree intentions in advance and consult with race organisers to determine predicted GBR entry limits. In the event of entry restrictions, then Home Nations will work together to determine who will attend. In the event of dispute, then the International Panel will make a final decision. If places remain at ECA Junior cup races after Home Nations entries are counted or 1 month before the race whichever is earlier, entries will be submitted in the date order that the entry request was received.
The International Panel intends that a 3 race senior, U23 & Junior selection series will be held at TBC on (date to fit Olympic team attending) in 2020. The IP will work collaboratively with Home Nation programme leads to identify suitable race opportunities and timings for junior selection in 2020. The International Panel will confirm dates and venue(s) for 2020 junior and senior team selection series by 24th April 2019. This will assist the development of an appropriate managed calendar for the 2020 season.
