Witney to Westminser Canoe Marathon 2019

The longest Charity Canoe Marathon in the UK, right into the heart of London, and raising funds for our strategic 'Adventure youthwork'.

This 127 mile challenge takes place in 6 stages. We invite individuals, teams and groups of all kinds to join us on this unique event. You can join us for anything from 1 to 6 days depending on how big a challenge you want.

A+ provides the canoes and kit you need (unless you have your own). Our qualified instructors paddle every mile of the journey with you.

We paddle from 20-24 miles per day, so you could be in a boat for up to 8 hours, but the many locks along the way serve as frequent rest (& snack) points, and ensure there is time to relax and chat as well.

Participants do not need any previous canoeing experience before they join us for the 3 pre-event practice sessions.

Our valiant participants have ranged from teenagers to those in their 60’s+.

Each night we stay with generous organisations such as churches and canoe clubs that provide a warm evening meal, space for 'indoor camping', as a team, and a hearty breakfast.
