PSK Distance Challenge

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, the weather and the conditions to suit you best.
The aim of this challenge is to be rewarded for knowledge and skill as well as fitness.
Comprised of 3 timed legs - 1 hr, 3hrs and 5 hrs.
Take as many goes as you want
We total up the distances and add the best from each leg onto the Combined Table
You can only use a stretch of water once on the Combined Table
There's also a separate ranking table for each leg distance.

    Format
  • Open to solo paddlers, teams and K2/Doubles.
  • Distance to be recorded by GPS.
  • Distances displayed on individual leg tables (1, 3, 5 hrs)
  • The Combined Table displays the best distance from each of the 3 component legs.
  • Routes from different legs cannot overlap in order to count towards the Combined Table.
  • Repeated attempts on same stretch of water for component legs allowed.
  • Don't worry if you forget to stop your GPS. Just send it in, we'll find the best distance for you.
  • No paddles from organised 3rd party events/coaching.
  • Enter as often as you like.

  • Craft
  • Any craft paddled should be specifically designed to be suitable for the chosen venue and conditions and should be in a seaworthy and safe condition.
  • Any suitable craft can be used on any run.

  • Assistance
  • No sails, motors etc. - human paddle power only.
  • Wash-hanging only from other members within the paddling team.
  • No assistance from outside the paddling team.

  • Safety
  • The paddler(s) must undertake an assessment of risk, for their chosen route, venue and conditions.
  • The management of any risk is entirely the responsibility of the paddler(s).
  • Ensure you/your group is capable of handling any conditions or hazards possible on your chosen route.
  • Paddlers must wear a PFD (Personal Flotation Device) at all times whilst on the water.
  • Helmets and Leashes should be worn where appropriate (helmets on moving water - leashes on Skis, SUP's etc on open water).
  • All craft must be rendered unsinkable, either by manufacturer design (bulkheads etc.) or via extra buoyancy devices (fitted airbags etc.)
  • Safety equipment such as VHF radio, PLB, flares, mobile phone, map, compass, shelter etc. should be carried as deemed appropriate.
  • Leave details of your route and time of return with a shore party and inform HM Coastguard as appropriate.
  • If you choose to paddle solo be aware of the significant extra risks involved.
