King of the Alps Finals

The halffinal (best 32 “Open men” and  5 “open women” from the Marathon race) is carried out in a “head-to-head-format“. Two kayakers form one heat (pairing). Each kayaker will run the final section alone and timed.

The fastest kayaker of each heat advances to next finale round. In the final the top 16 kayakers + 1 lucky looser  compete in the final sprint race (Once only)!

The organizers of the king of the alps reserve the right to reduce the number of participants in the final for security reasons!
