Paul Scarborough is proposing to run the above trip , just a quick blast up the M62 to the Burrs Country Park in Bury. The actual paddle is relatively short, on previous trips we have ran the river twice or three times in the day including its fantastic Slide Weir – worth the journey on its own ! Parents are more than welcome to come and spectate, walk the dog, take photos etc
Who is it aimed at ?
Paddlers who have completed their Beginner sessions with us over the Summer months and are happy paddling the White water section at the Club.
Help needed ?
We will need Car drivers, lift givers and a team of experienced paddlers to help Paul out on the day with safety and guidance.
What do you need to bring ?
Full wet paddling kit, no swim shorts , sturdy boots or trainers you don’t mind getting wet, Helmet, Bouyancy aid, spray deck ( these can be sorted and sourced at the club before we set off). Full change of clothing, money, packed lunch and drink .
How do I register ?
Email only to email@example.com stating if you have transport or need a lift and what kit you need to borrow.
