Barrow-on-soar WWR

Saturday January 12th

Who wants to go?

An entry level race and a fun day out. The Barrow Race is about 3k (1.8 miles) long on the River Soar in Leicestershire. It is a nice twisting river, which is ideal for all standards, from entry level up to international as it gives even the best racers a great work out. It is fun, testing and totally safe, no rocks or rough water, so the perfect race to get started on, but if you are more experienced, we can guarantee  you there will be some challenging competition!

The meeting place is at the Boathouse pub, LE12 8PN. From there you paddle along the canal as a short warm up, then portage a weir onto the River, the start is in the weir basin, then race back to the pub, which is where the finish line is. The venue is about 100 miles from Harefield and we would need to leave Harefield at 7:15am (meet at 7am). Entry fees are £6 per person.

We were there earlier in November, you can read the report here. Here are some pictures from past visits.
