2021 Head of the Dart VIRTUAL River Challenge – with a twist!

2020 saw an explosion in SUP and cancellation of events due to lockdown and restrictions to help stop the spread of COVID-19.   With effort continuing to fight the virus, we are unable to host this year’s event in the normal way however we recognise that paddlers (new and experienced alike) are keen to take part in events and share experiences.  We want to try and do something that combines bringing together those new to the sport as well as those who have been paddling for a while as a community.  

For 2021 only, we want to get as many paddlers as possible to come together – virtually – and over the course of April and May paddle as a community the length of the longest rivers in each continent – this is 33,600KM! It doesn’t matter if you only paddle 5km or 50km, whether you go for time or leisure….all distances will count.

To register – click here

It is FREE to enter and all we are asking is that for every KM you paddle that you raise £1 in sponsorship which will be shared equally between the RNLI and Surfers Against Sewage  via our JustGiving Page.  If you are looking to take part from outside the UK/Europe, you can nominate a charity closer to home.  You can paddle by yourself, paddle in a group (in line with government restrictions) and as part of your club.  To read more about the new challenge including initial details around prize draws for clubs and paddles please click here.

We hope everyone will embrace this challenge and support this challenge.
