The International Canoe Federation has announced it is launching a new virtual paddle challenge which will cater for paddlers from beginner level through to the elite, following the success of its 5k competition last month.
The ICF will have three new partners for the challenge – charity partner Peace and Sport, international canoe and kayak manufacturer, Rotomod, and media partner Kayak Session Publishing (publishers of Sup World mag, Paddle World mag, padderguide.com).
The new challenge will follow the same guidelines, but this time participants will have the choice of either a 5k or 2k distance. It is hoped the project will encourage paddlers of all ages and ability to get active, following months of Covid-19 restrictions.
