As part of National Go Canoeing week everyone was encouraged to log their miles paddled from Sat 28th May to Sun 5th June. Chester Canoe Club set a challenge of 500 miles and we smashed it achieving a total of 689 miles paddled with 31 paddlers recording their mileage.

Top Male Paddler: Richie Rogers – 62miles, Top Female Paddler: Jenny Illidge 60.5 miles (1mile ahead of Jenny Swallow). Top Junior Male Paddler: David Hatton 56.5miles, Top Junior Female Paddler: Rona Fishburn 26.6miles & Top C1: Eryk Marcinkowski   40.5miles

Most miles paddled in one day were on Sunday 29th May when 142.5miles were recorded mostly on the River Dee but with club members competing in Reading, Nottingham & Brigg.  Thanks to all who took part – go to http://www.gocanoeingweek.org.uk/ to see the Chester miles added to the UK total.
