Avon Descent

For many years, the club ran an annual national canoe marathon / descent race from Stratford-on-Avon to Bidford-on-Avon. This testing course covered 10 miles and 6 weirs or portages. We are no longer running this event, but this page has been retained as a historical record.


See the Avon Descent Map in a larger format, or view it from here using the controls on the embedded map. The placemarkers show the start and finish of the race, along with the locations of the weirs.
