    In partnership with our friends at Bray Lake and Go with the Flo we've put together the Thames Valley SUP Race series.


    The Series is aimed at SUP paddlers who want to push themselves, to paddle more efficiently, to improve your techniques and to have fun.


    We use the divisional format, which is based on your pace over 2km, with divisions 1-5 as follows:


    Division 1 - 13:29 and under

    Division 2 - 13:20 - 14:59

    Division 3 - 15:00 - 16:29

    Division 4 - 16:30 - 17:59

    Division 5 (Leisure/Novice category) - 18:00 and over


    The series will be run over 3 races, with one at each venue. Your best result from 2 races goes towards a series result.


    Our race here in Oxford will be a Hybrid-Technical race of approximately 6km with lots of twists and turns.
