Welcome to the website of The Severn Challenge.
The Severn Challenge was launched in 2015 and has been run in 2017 and 2019 since.
The next Challenge was due to take place in 2021 from Monday 5th April to Sunday 11th April.
But, due to Covid-19 has been postponed.
We are now investigating alternative dates and hope to publish new plans in the new year.
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.
