Our annual This Girl Can … Canoe Day is on Monday 28 May from 10 – 2.

This year – in addition to the opportunity to have a go at kayaking, we have so much more, and so many prizes and giveaways – hoody, base layers, vouchers for Boudavida and more.

Meet the Elite – a chance to talk to some of the country’s top female paddlers, including double Olympian, Angela Hannah and Kat Wilson and Alex Lane – record breaking Devizes to Westminster race winners; Alex is also a multiple international U23 marathon medallist.

The Adventurer Zone – meet and talk to Marvellous Mimi – Mimi Anderson, one of the world’s most inspirational female distance runners, multiple Guinness World Record holder, and author of Beyond Impossible. Also, Sophie Rooney – who in 2016 ran the length of Scandinavia unsupported; was named last year as one of 11 most inspiring young explorers in Britain, and next month is leading a group running across Iceland.

Health and Fitness – chat to a physio, and take part in some stretching drills.

Competition Time – have a go on the British Canoeing ergos (land-based paddle training machines), or the Wii Canoe game.

Recover – with tea and cake, and chat to the Banbury paddlers.

To help with planning, we’d be very grateful if you would complete this form – but equally, if the weather is good, do feel free to just turn up on the day – we’ll do our best to fit you in. https://nmuller.wufoo.co.uk/forms/z1onwj7c17mlcwb/
