The Big Avon Paddle – Lots More to Splash About!

The Big Avon Paddle is back for a fourth year on Saturday 14 September! It promises to deliver even more fun with new elements for participants to enjoy.  Get on board with Dorothy House on the River Avon, and help us raise vital funds for hospice care in our community.

What’s involved in the event?

The Big Avon Paddle takes place at The Boathouse, Bath starting at 10am and finishing at 6pm.

This year there are two options to paddle.  The new 1.5-mile fun loop starts at The Boathouse and goes upstream towards Weston Lock and back.  The4.5-mile loop heads downstream to the Avon County Rowing Club and back.

It’s up to participants which route they choose or whether they decide to paddle a mix of both routes, even deciding how many loops they can complete during the day at a pace to suit themselves. It promises be a fun filled day out for participants of all abilities and ages and an ideal team-building event for families, friends and colleagues!

This year, an optional fun Pirate theme provides the opportunity to dress in pirate costume and compete for the ‘best dressed pirate’ prize.  Refreshments will be available at The Boathouse and there will be live music entertainment throughout the day.

Each entry fee includes a finisher’s medal and pizza at the end of the day.
