Challenge 2017

Sun, 30/04/2017 (All day)

General event

A fun, sponsored canoe trip down the River Thames to raise money for Adventure Plus.

Enjoy travelling at the speed of the river from West Oxfordshire all the way down to Westminster (taking 6 days to cover a journey that can be done in 2 hours by car), watch the river change and grow and admire such sights as Christchurch Cathedral, Magdalen Bridge, Windsor Castle and the Houses of Parliament.

The challenge is to complete the 127 mile canoe and reach, or exceed, the sponsorship target. Funds raised will go towards establishing an AdventureBase in Oxfordshire to help children and young people. This is the longest canoe challenge in the UK.

Children & Young People - Many families join the challenge e.g. as Father & Daughter(s) or Mother & Son(s) teams. Minimum age is 10, and anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult (or join as part of a supervised group). Registration fees and sponsorship targets are 50% of those for adults. Due to strong tides, the final day is more challenging and minimum age is 14. It is not possible for people to join for the final day only.
