Register and Promote your Event

British Canoeing recognise the importance of supporting our sport at both grass roots and elite level. Upload your events for free here.

Events are an integral part of the sport and we know how vital the help can be with the organisation and promotion of your event.

Our event promotion and endorsement scheme is currently under review and is subject to changes. Currently, it is free to upload your events.

How to promote your events

Register your event using the online form below. After submission someone from the events team will get back to you in 7 days.

We may ask for a bit more information, however, if we have everything we need, you can expect to see your event in the following areas:

  • On our 'What's On' page
  • Included in links on our newsletters
  • On our website via the 'Canoe Near You' map search feature
  • On social media posts

This service is open to our English affiliated clubs and centres and is also available to other non-affiliated organisations by application. Promotion of your event is offered free of charge. A higher level of support, promotion and endorsement would be subject to a small charge. For more information please contact us at event.promotion@britishcanoeing.org.uk.
