Wild Trent Challenge

August 31st 2019

Explore wild spaces, experience the Trent Valley in a whole new way, do something awesome for local wildlife.

Join us for a wild adventure that’ll take you on an 9km run and 8km canoe downstream along the mighty River Trent in Derbyshire. 

Due to the style of canoes being used entries are for teams of two or three only; so it's a great way to get social outdoors.

By taking on our wild challenge you’re helping bees, badgers, butterflies and more. That’s amazing!
