Winter Challenge Final Results

So the results are in: 1,868 Total Miles (up from 1,500 last year); 31 unique locations with 3 or more paddlers (up from 27 past year); 58 paddlers participated. Graham Thomas wins for the Senior Men (140); Rita O’Reilly wins for the Senior Ladies (194) and Emma Witherford for the Juniors (52) closely followed by Jonah Morgan (33) and Max Nutbeem (33). We’ve done really well this year. I will submit to British Canoeing later this week, so let’s see how we compare.

Emma makes GB Freestyle Team in her first year as a Senior.

Well done to Emma Witherford on making the GB Senior Ladies Freestyle Team in her first year as a senior after a succesful career in the junior ranks.
