In association with British Canoeing, the 100 mile canoe test was conceived as a personal challenge for youngsters coming together in teams from youth clubs all over the country. Over four days the participants call on their skill, determination and stamina to complete the 100 mile route. The achievement brings a sense of personal fulfilment and team camaraderie that will remain with them for life.

The 2017 event took place over four days on the River Wye during the late May bank holiday.

The boys became involved in canoeing through their local youth centre and have really shown huge commitment with their passion to this sport.

Well done boys!
