Kamloops area men competing in Canadian marathon canoe race

Imagine canoeing for three days straight over 200 kilometres. Then picture yourself doing it as part of a race. Two men from the Kamloops area are doing that this weekend in Quebec. We'll check in with them.

The race is called La Classique Internationale du Canots. It is the biggest marathon canoe race in Canada and it is happening this weekend in Quebec.
            
Christopher Nicolson of Sun Peaks and Randy Brooks from Salmon Arm are competing in it. We tracked Christopher down in Shawinigan.
