40tude's 2017 London SUP Marathon
We're delighted that registration is now open for our fifth Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Marathon on the River Thames, taking place on Saturday 10th June 2017.
The 40tude London SUP Marathon is a long distance (approximately 26 miles) mass paddle on the River Thames from Shepperton to Putney. The course combines tidal and non-tidal sections of the river passing through three locks and under 14 bridges while taking in some of the river’s most picturesque sights, including Hampton Court, Syon House, Kew Gardens, Ham House and Richmond Hill. At the end of the day, we’ll celebrate our achievements with a party at the finish in Putney.
Once again our London SUP Marathon will be led by our event partner Active360. Active360 can provide all necessary equipment for the event and will be running a series of training sessions on the Thames beforehand so you can get a feel for the water and hone your paddleboarding skills.
You would be very welcome to field a family or work team – perhaps consider a team-building event with a difference? This year we’re offering registered teams the chance to race Red Paddle Co's four-person Dragon boards on the last stretch of the marathon from Hammersmith to Putney. Each Dragon board team will, we hope, include also a representative from St. Mark’s Hospital, whose inspiring projects you will be helping to support by taking part in this event. Dragon board racers are limited to four teams so act now to secure your place!
