National Go Canoeing Week is back!
National Go Canoeing Week is British Canoeing's yearly campaign which aims to bring the excitement of paddlesport to everyone. Last year's theme, The Big Adventure, was so popular that we are bringing it back for a second year.
The week runs during half term week, 26th May - 3rd June. With a few months to go before it begins there are already over one hundred activities and events already listed on the National Go Canoeing Week website.
It isn't just through organised activities that people can take part though. A huge amount of people clock up their miles throughout the week by getting out on the water with individual adventures. Whether it's doing their regular paddle and just going that little bit further or planning a bigger adventure for the week, it's time to get thinking about how you can take part.
An ambitious mileage target of 45,000 miles has been set for the week, so it's more important than ever for everyone to join in. As with last year, there will be a photo competition running throughout the week, giving people the chance to be featured on the homepage of the website and enter a prize draw.
There will also be prizes for top mileage going to individuals and organisations and the chance of spot prizes for everyone who enters miles.
