Ready to Join?

I know, I know... SUP season finale when the sea is still frozen we haven't even started yet? But we'll be running plenty of water based activities throughout the summer so you'll have lots of time and many opportunities to get paddle fit.

The Big Ben Challenge is a group paddle through one of the most iconic and historic riverscapes in the world! Not the sort of paddle we do every day, and a fantastic way to end the summer season on a high note. Plus it's great to have a goal to work towards, and we get to enjoy a fun weekend in London!

Up to Protected content will journey 20km along the river, taking in the sights and sounds of the city. It's not a race in the strictest sense of the word (no prizes for coming first) but everybody who completes the course is entered into a draw for which there WILL be prizes. And some friendly competition between paddlers is always a possibility anyway if that's your thing.

We hope to be meeting up with our Internations friends from London's Outdoors group, and maybe members from other cities too. Travel and accommodation we'll sort out closer to the date.

Those without boards (probably all of us here) can request to rent one during registration.

This event is NOT for the first time SUP paddler. You will need some experience and a decent level of fitness. And surely I don't need to say that swimming ability is essential, do I? But that's OK, we have all summer to get there! So if this sounds like your idea of fun and you would like a unique goal to work towards go sign up for the race and stick your name on this event.

Hope to see you on the river!
