Are you looking for a new challenge? Want to take part in a unique event? Then our 12 mile Canoe Challenge is ideal.

What is the challenge?

Taking place on the Lancaster canal, starting at Bridge House Marina in Garstang, you will canoe (in minimum teams of 2 people) 12 miles to Lancaster, taking in the fantastic scenery as you go.

The 12-mile course can take between 3 and 5 hours to complete, making it a real challenge and hugely rewarding once completed.

There are no locks along this stretch of the canal so no need to worry about getting out or going through them.

The Age UK Lancashire team will be at checkpoints along the route offering support and encouragement, ensuring your safety and wellbeing at all times.

Equipment

You will be fully supported on the day and all canoes, buoyancy aids and paddles are provided.  We also have a FREE practice session to help you prepare.

A suggested kit list is sent out prior to the challenge, so you will be fully prepared and raring to go.

Teams

You will need to have a minimum of 2 people in your team, or you can enter a team of up to 5 people and split the distance.  If you have more than 5 people we would suggest entering 2 teams. 

No entry fee

There is NO ENTRY FEE and all we ask is you raise a minimum of £150 per person.

We will help set you up with a fundraising page, provide sponsorship forms and can give you tips on how to achieve your target, so you are fully supported to help achieve your target.

The course

Starting point: Bridge House Marina, Garstang 

Finishing point: Waterwitch Pub, Lancaster

Practice session

We provide a FREE practice session, that all participants must attend, so we can ensure you are capable of taking on the challenge and help/teach you.  This session is really helpful, even if you have canoed before, as it gives you the opportunity to get a feel for the challenge and saves vital time on challenge day. 

The practice day is on Sunday 18th September 2022 at Plox Brow in Tarleton.

You can book your preferred time slot on the registration form below.

Full details of the practice day are provided once you have registered for the challenge.
