New Website and rules

09 December 2017

2018 will be the 70th DW race

For our 70th year, we have a number of changes, including a new website to improve navigation and simplifying your online experience. Coming soon will be a new range of 70th Anniversary merchandise, which will be customisable with your name / team name / school and/or finishing time.

we have also made some changes to the format of the race.

Our volunteers have spent significant time streamlining and revising the rules to make them simpler to understand. There are multiple changes including modifications to the compulsory kit, entry requirements and time constraints,  so please familiarise yourself with them before entering.

Please bear in mind none of these decisions have been taken lightly and all are made with a view to protecting the format and future of the DW race, ensuring we have the best prepared paddlers competing, and ensuring we run a safe and successful race for all involved with DW.


We look forward to seeing you all in Devizes
