Event description

Description

The Desmond Family Canoe Trail is launching this summer! Stretching over 160miles, the trail runs along the Aire and Calder and Leeds Liverpool canal from Goole to Liverpool. To celebrate the launch of the trail we’ll be having a relay all along the towpath, with participants starting in Goole and Liverpool and meeting in the middle at Burnley!

The Leeds to Bingley stretch is taking place on Monday 19th August and we welcome you to run, walk, bike or even roller blade as far as you can on this day. We won't be providing canoes on this section because of all the locks, but we do welcome paddlers with their own boats and licence to take part.

You can take part at any time and Canal and River Trust staff will be handing out race numbers along the towpath between 10 and 3pm (Leeds, Kirstall, Apperley Bridge, let us know your start point). We ask you take a photo of yourself and/or your group, post your start and end points and tag your participation with #DFCTLaunch so we can see everyone whose taken part across the whole trail!

PLEASE NOTE: If you are taking part after 3pm please contact Sophie sophie.peel@canalrivertrust.org.uk to recieve your race numbers via post.
