Advertisements

You will need to choose a route and a start time. If you are supporting by car or cycling round, please see Where to Watch

ROUTES

Choose from one of these three routes.

See Ben’s GoPro video – around the Ring in 2 minutes for a taster

21 Miles – THE COMPLETE WORCESTER RING

  • Start and finish at Worcester Canoe Club.
  • 18 portages, 2 tunnels and 2 food stops.
  • This is the full circle for experienced paddlers – a tough challenge.

15 Miles – THE OFFERTON CRUISE

    • Start at Offerton and finish at Worcester Canoe Club.
    • 12 portages, 2 tunnels and 1 food stop.
    • Still challenging

 

START TIMES

Choose an appropriate start time for the route you have chosen. You must finish by 5pm so choose a route and start time which will comfortably allow you to do that.  If you are not sure why not go for the shorter route – you can always do the full ring another time.
