Five Rivers Festival: River Race

May 23rd, 2020 @ 12:00 - 15:00

CANCELLED – River Race & SUP Boarding – Saturday 23rd May 2020

Unfortunately, we have come to the decision to cancel the 2020 Five Rivers Festival event so it will not take place this year in May as planned. Due to the current increase in the spread of Coronavirus disease, and growing uncertainty on mass gatherings, we feel it is in the everyone’s best interests to put this event on hold.

However, the Festival plans to be back in 2021 so watch this space! We will be posting details as soon as we can!

Taking place at Churchill Gardens, the hilarious Team River Race is back – along with the massive 2 metre by 2 metre MEGA DUCKS who are seeking their revenge!

Teams of 3 are invited to try and get down a 100 metre course as quickly as possible, racing against five other teams and trying to use a single paddle to best advantage.  The holders of the trophy in 2019, after a tightly contested final, are Spruce Pools who are challenging all comers in 2020!

In addition to the Team Race, there will be a free Individual Race for those interested in an extra bit of mad fun. Just be careful to keep warm though, as the water hasn’t warmed up too much by the end of May!

In 2020, we have also teamed up with the Wiltshire Outdoor Learning Team who are putting on a small number of ‘taster sessions’ on SUP Boarding. Light refreshments will be available for participants and supporters.
