100 Mile Canoe Challenge group leaders training weekend info

For the second year running the 100m Canoe Challenge will not take place due to Covid. Which presents a great opportunity to get together a group of aspirant water group leaders from all of the clubs and members of the safety team to have an enjoyable weekend looking at paddle skills and group leadership on the water.

As a result, we would hope that more clubs will feel able to send teams to take part when the challenge restarts in May 2022.


The weekend will be at Broadway’s Meadow, Barrow upon Soar near Loughborough.

Each club can send up to three people to take part. They will need to bring their own camping kit.

All meals will be provided and where needed we can offer assistance with travel expenses.


  • Arrival will be on Friday evening 28th May
  • Local paddle/training followed by curry evening on Saturday 29th May
  • Longer paddle and campfire BBQ on Sunday 30th May
  • Trip to Matlock Bath for a paddle on the River Derwent Monday 31st May
  • You are welcome to stay over Monday evening and depart Tuesday or leave directly after finishing on the Monday.


Only cost for the weekend is your time (thank you) and, if you can cover it, your travel.

We are asking for a deposit of £20 per person which will be refunded upon attendance.
