Welcome to the 15th annual Canadian Sculling Marathon (CSM) organized by the rowing section of the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club (ONEC) and inspired by the world-renowned Canadian Ski Marathon. As one of the distance events of the Ontario Adventure Rowing Association, the emphasis is on participation, fitness, endurance and fun! The CSM offers a choice of two touring distances, the full marathon (42 km) and the half marathon (21 km). The scenery along both routes is as spectacular as it is varied: views of the capital’s most famous landmarks, shoreline recreational pathways, and protected wetlands and forested areas.
