About The Event
The London Crossing will be able to host 30 experienced SUP racers. This will be the first ever SUP race right through central London, taking the competitors on an iconic 15.5 km-stretch of the Thames, from Putney to Shadwell, just past Tower Bridge. The racers will have to deal with river currents and traffic.
The second event on the day is the Big Ben Challenge, open to 200+ experienced and confident paddlers. The 20 km-challenge runs from Putney Embankment, where the Boat Race starts, all the way to Big Ben and back.
