Basingstoke Canal Challenge 2019

The 28th Basingstoke Canal Challenge will held be on Sunday 29th September 2019.
The venue will be Colt Hill (Odiham Wharf), Odiham. RG29 1AL

The map reference for the venue is 747516 (sheet 186 or Explorer 144). This map or this one may help give you an idea as to the location of the event.

The challenge is to paddle 3, 6 or 8 miles on the Basingstoke canal in the fastest possible time. Each entrant will be timed over their chosen distance, and the emphasis is on a personal challenge rather than a race. Both single and double canoes and kayaks are eligible.

The event will start between 09.00 & 10.00 (6 & 8 miles) and 10.00 & 10.15 for 3 miles. The event will finish at the same place by 14.00.
Entry fee is £3.00 per seat paid in advance or £5.00 if paid on the day.

Certificates will be presented to all those completing the challenge, and a Group trophy will be awarded to the Group having the 4 fastest paddlers over the 6 mile course.
