It’s National Go Canoeing Week starting 28th May – the perfect time to get paddling! The Olympic inspired British Canoeing initiative aims to get everyone out on the water to have some splashing fun, no matter what their ability or age – and to get the nation to collectively paddle 30,000 miles during the week. With over 400 clubs and centres across the United Kingdom running activities, everyone can log on to the Go Canoeing Week website to submit the individual miles they paddle to help reach the target. There are plenty of ‘Starter Sessions’ on offer for novices as well as Challenge Paddles where you can get the family out onto the water to paddle and watch the pretty scenery pass by. Everyone who takes part in a Challenge Paddle receives a Go Canoeing medal too. There are also Guided Tours on offer, if you prefer someone to lead you on your way.
When/Where: 29 May – 5 June, nationwide
Price: event prices vary, see website.
