Northern SUP Racing is a collaboration of Clubs & Schools working together to organise races which support the development of SUP in North of England.
The penultimate race in the Winter Series 2019/2020 will be hosted by us on 22nd March at Fell Foot.
All paddlers and board types welcome. This is a fun and informal event, a way to meet other paddlers, get motivated in the cooler season, check out different boards and see what you can do.
We would like to encourage participation from as many people as possible:
- Beginners who need to hire a board and give the challenge a go
- Enthusiasts and first time racers looking to enjoy the challenge of competing
- Series Racers looking to "bag some points" for the series
There will be three classes of race:
- 3km - for all abilities on all round boards under 12'6

- 1km - for Juniors
All entry Fees will go directly towards covering the cost of Venue and Safety Boat use.
