About The Clarence 100

In 2015 a group of paddlers came together for the purpose of completing a challenge to paddle 100km down the “Mighty Clarence River” Paying homage to its beauty and setting the performance level for the years ahead.

In 2017 the Clarence 100 returns to the district in Northern NSW.  The C100 comprises a 3 stage 3 day paddle and is  conducted along the Clarence River and all the towns along the way. Held from the 20th until the 22nd October in 2017.

In 2016 there were 70 paddlers who set the records and in 2017 due to a fantastic  response  we expect a great   turn out  for this year.


The Event caters for both  Social and Competitive paddler. Be aware the pace gets faster as the event draws to its finish point. On completion  enjoy the presentation lunch to be held at Yamba Surf Club directly after  the finish . .


The purpose of “The Clarence 100” is to provide paddlers a great experience  that showcases great local hospitality  an awesome paddle pitch ,good people, and hopefully awesome weather (rain hail or shine its great)


The event could not take place without the logistic support provided by the Clarence Valley Council , the  Big River Canoe Club and the Yamba Surf Club.  The Clarence 100 supports them all in return through your presence in the Clarence Valley over the three days.


For the 2017 an  event  restriction of 200 paddlers will apply. Don’t think about it, for too long… Entry through online entry found on this site. From early July


The Clarence 100 provides participants an opportunity to support the local Clarence Valley community by way of a compulsory donation (inclusive in entry fee) to support youth sporting groups within the Clarence valley community.   For 2016 all excess funds raised through the C100 will be donated to the Yamba SLSC Nipper and Junior development program and presented on the day of event conclusion.

The C100 also provides participants to experience the magnificent scenery and local hospitality provided by a number of river townships along the way. The Clarence 100 supports the local community.
