AURONZO 2021 - The classic canoe event returns to Lake Santa Caterina


From 2nd to 4th July the 40th edition of the International Sprint Canoe Race
 in Auronzo di Cadore (BL

This classic canoe event returns to Lake Santa Caterina. 600 athletes from 9 Nations, prelude to the U23 and Junior Canoe Sprint World Championships
assigned to Auronzo in 2023.

From Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th July, Lake Santa Caterina in Auronzo di Cadore (BL) will host the 40th edition of the International Sprint Canoe Race for the U16, Junior, Senior, Master and Paracanoe categories.

The international competition every year hosts hundreds of athletes from all over the world and from Italian canoe clubs. To celebrate this important anniversary, from this year the race will also host foreign clubs who want to participate in the event with their athletes (until 2019, foreign crews could only compete as national representatives).

The competition program includes heats, semi-finals and finals over the distance of 1,000 mt. (Friday), 500 mt. (Saturday) and 200 mt. (Sunday).

Registrations officially closed on Thursday 24 June, but this edition, even taking into account the restrictions of the federal Covid Protocol to be respected, is on a par of the 2017 and 2019 editions, thanks to over 20 foreign representatives from Germany (national team and 9 clubs), Switzerland (national team and 2 clubs), Austria (national team), Slovenia (national team and 3 clubs), Belgium (national team), Tunisia (national team), Czech Republic (1 club) and Poland (1 club) for a total of approximately 150 foreign athletes. The Italian national team will also be present together with over 50 Italian clubs.

The Organising Committee has as its reference the Venice Canoe & Dragon Boat sports association, a club founded in Venice in 2003, and is in close collaboration with the Municipality of Auronzo di Cadore.

Particular attention was paid by the organisation to welcoming foreign clubs / teams, both in terms of accommodation and in terms of technical sports assistance. And specific attention has also been given to the health aspect. CONI Veneto and the Veneto Region have guaranteed the availability of about 800 Covid-19 swabs.

The preparation work of the event area will begin this week, with the preparation and assembly of the competition field.

The arrival of the first clubs/teams is expected from Wednesday 30 June.
