    Hi Marcin,

    As a Foreign National you can race and you can stand on the podium in the British National Marathon Championships (1st, 2nd and 3rd place), but you cannot receive British National Marathon Championships Medals. To be the ‘British National Marathon Champion’ or to receive British National Marathon Championships Medals you must be a British National, OR have been resident in the UK for 2 years and have been a member of British Canoeing for 2 full years before the race date. For exact description see Part F on page F45 of the Britich Canoeing Marathon Racing Rules at http://canoeracing.org.uk/marathon/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/2019-Racing-Rules-141218.pdf

    However, if you did place on the podium we ( Norwich Canoe Club as the host club) can award you a prize to recognise your achievement.

    I hope that answers your question. It would be great to see you and your fellow countryman at the British National Marathon Championships.
