Welcome to the website of The Severn Challenge.
This years Challenge will take place between Monday 17th April to Sunday 23rd April 2017
The Severn Challenge is to undertake a canoe journey down the length of The Severn River from the highest point of Severn Navigation, Pool Quay, Welshpool, to Gloucester Docks and then down the Gloucester Canal to Saul Junction.
The Challenge is a challenging event, not a race, to undertake the task of canoeing all 144 miles of our planned journey, about 21 miles per day.
As you undertake The Challenge you can also be raising money, through sponsership, for your own BB Company and other Charities.
Canoeing the River Severn is not technically difficult, so most Company members, even if they only have limited experiance, can attempt The Challenge.
You will be staying with members of the other Companies taking part overnight in different locations alongside the river's course. So there is plenty of opportunity to meet members from the other Companies taking part and share the experiance.
Many of the pages of the Website have now been prepared and can be read as expected from the Menu choices.
These pages answer questions about where the Challenge takes place, daily activity, equipment needed etc.
Some more detailed information will be added as the date for the Challenge gets closer and information becomes available.
Much of the information will becomes availabe as downloads to enable you to use kit lists etc for your preparation
Registration is open from 10th Janaury
Come and join us, it is fun and a great experiance!
