The 100 Mile Wilderness Canoe Challenge!
17-21 August 2020
Arrive – PM of the 16th
Take on 100 miles of the River Severn and canoe from Welshpool to Gloucester over 5 days.
This 5-day challenge is more than achievable even for those new to canoeing. Each day starts with a hearty wilderness breakfast, before launching off for the morning’s paddle. Only stopping for toilet breaks, snacks and lunch, you will wind your way along the longest river in the UK and spend the night under the stars along the picturesque riverbank.
Following a short leg mid-way through the challenge, you will mark the halfway point of your trip with a BBQ, wilderness cooking session, introduction to survival skills & campfire coaching session at TEAM Bootcamps ‘Low camp’ (Knowlesands, near Bridgnorth).
Then it’s the long push to Gloucester and the finish line. The emphasis of this trip is disconnecting from modern life and reconnecting to nature and yourself for 5-days. Your river guide and mindset coach will ensure you are both safe and inspired throughout the route and your event director will ensure you are catered for adequately.
Weight loss is not the aim of this trip, but you can expect to be challenged physically and also have your wellbeing nurtured.
