WHY THE RIVER WYE 85 MILE CHALLENGE?
Now here’s a REAL challenge. The River Wye 85 Mile Challenge is our longest route. Designed to be taken on over multiple days, this beautiful challenge takes you on a journey along the border of England and Wales.
The Wye is regarded as one of the finest lowland landscapes in Britain with plants and animal life of international importance. On the river you can see kingfishers, otters and salmon. In the Forest of Dean, wild boar and deer roam freely.
The route is mainly flat water with some simple grade 1 rapids and fast moving water as well as a grade 2 rapid at Symonds Yat.
Enjoy the unspolit wonders of the Wye as you challenge yourself to complete this adventure. Take on the route at a leisurely speed or try to bust it. Either way, register your completed challenge with us to receive your certificate and get on the leaderboard.
