WHY THE WORCESTER RING CHALLENGE?
A route to test your strength and endurance over 21 epic miles, the Worcester Ring Challenge route has evolved from the race of the same name, and will see you paddle and portage your way through beautiful city and countryside.
Worcester is a charming city, with its 12th century cathedral a star attraction. Your journey will take you from the centre of the city and out into the sprawling countryside before heading through attractive Droitwich Spa.
Like a bit of history while you paddle!? If you take on this challenge, you will be following the journey of the salt industry, so it’s a great adventure for all you history buffs out there. The route follows the same journey as the salt would have from Driotwich Spa, along natural and man-made waterways from the town to the rest of the world.
Make sure you take the time to explore the area before or after your epic challenge. For more detail download the information pack. You can check local resources on the Paddle Points link.
This challenge route was created with the kind help of Worcester Canoe Club.
