Cheshire Ring Race Entry Information

2018 Race Date: 30th June + 1st July

Entry fees for 2018 will be £20.00 per person. Note that in line with British Canoeing policies, there is an additional charge of £5.00 per person for non-members of British Canoeing for event insurance. Junior members of clubs affiliated to British Canoeing (or other affiliated associations) are automatically covered for insurance purposes. Members of British Canoeing (or other affiliated associations) will need to show proof of their current membership at check-in.

Note that as of 2018, a 15 hour cut-off time for arrival at Broken Cross (about half-way) has been imposed. The race has traditionally been intended to be a 24 hour challenge and applying this cut-off time should ensure that competitors finish within 26 hours.

C1 or K1 all the way, C2 or K2 all the way, C1 or K1 relay (2 to 5 person), C2 or K2 relay (4 to 10 person), K2 or Double Tourer 10-person relay (adult plus junior pairs). Other reasonable forms of relay can be accommodated subject to prior agreement with the organiser.

Traditionally the major relay class is the double kayak ten person team - made up of five pairs, each with a senior plus a junior. Note that since 2015, senior women cannot count as a junior in the five pair junior/adult K2 or Tourer relay team classes.

If your club/organisation wishes to enter a class but does not have enough paddlers to make up a full team, please contact the organiser who may be able to link you to other paddlers who are looking for team members.


Details about entering the event and other important documents containing information about the course for paddlers and supporters are on the Race Documents tab.

The secure online entry system will open on or around 1st April 2018.
Entries received after 16th June 2018 will be charged at £25 per seat.

Entries cannot be accepted after 23rd June 2018.

Entries can be cancelled, through the on-line entry system, up to three weeks before the race. Entry fees will then be refunded, less an administration fee of 6%.

Some changes such as contact details etc. can be made online through the entry system by the competitor.

For changes in details of the paddlers please contact the MADCC Entries Administrator. Transfer of entries to another competitor or team will be allowed up to three weeks before the race. Changes in the number of paddlers in a relay team will be allowed up to one week before the race (through the MADCC Entry Administrator) – but no refunds will be made for a reduction in paddler numbers in the last three weeks and any increase in paddler numbers will be charged at the rate applying on the date of notification.
