The ICF Canoe Marathon World Championships are an international event in canoeing organised by the International Canoe Federation (ICF). The World Championships have been held every two years since their first edition in 1988, before converting into an annual event as of 1998.

Explanation of events[edit]

Canoe marathon competitions are broken up into Canadian canoe (C), an open canoe with a single-blade paddle, or in kayaks (K), a closed canoe with a double-bladed paddle. Each canoe or kayak can hold one person (1) or two people (2). When a competition is listed as a C2 event as an example, it means two people are in a canoe competing.
