PSK Distance Challenge 2020

A multi-location, distance paddling challenge which aims to test knowledge and planning, along with the physicality of paddling.
Paddle anywhere, any time - you choose the venue and the conditions for the best advantage.

100k_logo
There are 4 timed legs: 1 hour, 3 hour, 5 hour and the monster 100k Day (24 hrs).
Paddle any or all of them. Just paddle as far as you can inside the leg time limit - 1 hr, 3hrs and 5 hrs.
For the 100K Day challenge, you must complete at least 100km in 24 hrs to count - anything less does not qualify!
You choose the venue: flat, moving or open water, it's up to you. And if the weather drives you indoors then you can add an Ergo run.

Send in your GPS track file, we'll take out the best distance and add your run to the table.

The PSK Distance Challenge + is an unsupervised standing challenge.
