PSK Distance Challenge

A multi-location, distance-paddling challenge which aims to test research and planning, along with the physicality of paddling.


Comprised of 3 timed legs - 1 hr, 3hrs and 5 hrs.
You choose the venue and time
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 a separate ranking table for each leg too.

    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.
  • Enter as often as you like.

  • Craft
  • For a Total Distance - use the same craft for each leg. Runs just for the 1, 3 or 5 hr tables can use any suitable craft.
  • Different craft may be used where attempts are not to count towards the Combined Table.
  • Any craft should be specifically designed to be suitable for the venue paddled.

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

  • Safety
  • The paddler(s) must undertake an assessment of risk, for their chosen route and venue.
  • 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.
