Wild Trent Challenge

Trent Adventure, Barrow upon Trent, Derby

Organiser's Description

Be prepared to get a bit muddy, a bit wet and a lot wild! Explore wild spaces, experience the Trent Valley in a whole new way, do something awesome for local wildlife.

Join us for a wild adventure that’ll take you on a 9k run and an 8k canoe downstream along the mighty River Trent in Derbyshire. By taking on our wild challenge you’ll be helping bees, badgers, butterflies and more.

Due to the style of canoes being used, entries are for teams of two or three. It's a great way to get social outdoors.

Reviews

Great fun, lovely people!

Quite a small event run by lovely volunteers. A few logistical teething problems, but I’m sure this will be sorted for next time - there was a long delay at the start and the markets were too small/hard to see. Other than that it was fun, brilliant course, the kayaking was safe but an exciting challenge. For future it would be nice to acknowledge the winners in a fun/mini podium maybe? Thoroughly enjoyed the experience though, would fully recommend and will definitely do it again next year!
