This iconic South African canoeing event was founded in 1951 and covers 120km between the towns of Pietermaritzburg and Durban in KwaZulu-Natal on the east coast of South Africa.

The Dusi is the largest canoeing event on the African continent and one of the most popular river marathons in the world.

The race is held every February and starts on the Msunduzi River which runs through Pietermaritzburg.

The halfway point of the race begins where the Msunduzi River meets the much larger uMngeni River and the final stage is a 36km stretch from the Inanda Dam to the Blue Lagoon in Durban.
