PSK 100K Day Info

Info updated 04-Mar-2021

  • 100k Day Challenge is part of the PSK Distance Challenge. 100k Day figures are included in the Distance Challenge Totals Table
  • You must paddle a minimum of 100km in 24 hours to qualify. Distances of less than 100km are not eligible.
  • You have 24 hours to complete the 100 km distance.
  • Structure your paddle as you want - all in one go, in blocks with rest between or whatever. It's up to you.
  • The clock starts when you do, and ends when you call it a day (or reach 24 hours) - the clock continues to run during rest/breaks/stops etc.
  • Each paddling leg MUST be recorded on GPS. Plan your battery life or charge, memory use etc. to allow for this. (Optimising Your GPS)
  • Choice of venue is up to you - sea, river, lake, canal etc.
  • No boat change allowed during a 100k Day Challenge attempt. The boat you paddle at the start is the one you use throughout the 24 hrs.
  • 'Doubling-up' from/to other PSK pages is allowed.
  • Paddles from organised 3rd party events/commercial coaching or guiding are NOT eligible.
  • No external support or assistance is allowed between clock start and finish.
  • Send in your circumnav via email or Messenger:
  • Please send in the GPS track file in .gpx format (or .fit or .tcx). The GPS file please - No links or screengrabs!
  • Remaining rules/guidance as per PSK Distance Challenge +

  • Any craft paddled should be specifically designed to be suitable for the chosen venue and conditions. It must be in a seaworthy and safe condition.

Ergo Entries
  • Ergo distances are eligible for the 100k, but they will not count towards the Distance Challenge Totals Table.
  • Before you start, set your resistance setting and then calibrate your ergo drag for that setting. Resistance and Drag Cal Figures are required for each entry.
  • Photographic (or app) proof of distance covered is required for any and all paddling legs. No proof - no total.
  • We may add a separate 100k Ergo page.
