Entry Information

2017 Race Date: 24th-25th June

Entry fees for 2017 will remain at £18.00 per person. Note that in line with Canoe England 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.

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 ten person relay (adult plus junior pairs). Other reasonable forms of relay can be accommodated subject to the prior agreement of 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 from 2015 onwards senior women cannot be counted as juniors in either the K2 or Tourer 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.
