Event description

Description

The Challenge: design and build a raft that can take between 4 and 6 team members along the 1.2km stretch of the Thames and Severn Canal. All by paddle power!

Starting from the Fromeside Landing, away from town towards Capels Mill where you must take on the slalom and then back again all the way to Wallbridge Upper Lock and the finish line by the Bell House.

Using whatever materials you can beg, borrow or otherwise source. Raft design is very important as it must be as light in weight as possible to allow you to carry it into and out of the canal, also due to the nature of the course rafts must fit within specific size guidelines

All participants must provide their own bouyancy aids and will not be permitted to enter the water without them

As well as a great day out an equally significant part of the race is to raise funds for local charities, the Cotswold Canals Trust, and The Door and all participants are encouraged to collect sponsorship in aid of their efforts to raise additional funds for these worthwhile causes.
