Description

White Cloud Foundation invite you to join the Paddle to Battle Depression on Saturday, August 19th, 2017

The paddle is a fun filled, one-day paddle down the Brisbane River. Commencing at 8 am from Kookaburra Park at Karana Downs and finishing around 4 pm at Fig Tree Pocket River Reserve.

You can paddle any suitable craft as an individual, a double or enter as a relay team.

The event is an opportunity to bring the community together. We want to paddle together as a show of support, to help each other overcome the challenge and make it to the end, we won’t leave anyone up the creek without a paddle!

After last year's event, there was some interest in adding a race component to the event. We will take expressions of interest during the registration process and if warranted may look into adding a race leg before the lunch stop.

There are four battle distances to suit all level of paddlers.

1. The Long Haul:

Complete the full distance of 35 km from start to finish, with a break for lunch and afternoon rest stop. You can participate in a single or double watercraft. (Approximate time 7 hours)

2. The Late Launch

Join us at Richardson Park, Goodna, where you will then paddle the last 17.5 km including a short afternoon rest stop. You can participate in a single or double watercraft (approximate time 4 hours)

3. The Team Relay

A great way to take part in the paddle and share the load. Get a team of 2-6 people together and share the 35 km paddle.

You can also share your watercraft – a great option if you do not have your own.

You can participate in a single or double craft and choose to break your relay into 2 or 3 sections, with a change over at lunch and/or at the afternoon rest stop.

4. The Last Leg

Join in the fun of the home stretch and paddle the last 6 km from the Jindalee Boat Ramp to the finish line at Fig Tree Pocket. A 1 hour paddle and a great option for less experienced paddlers, you will then join the post paddle celebrations.

Entry Fee

$59.00 per paddler Long Haul

$49.00* per late launch and last leg paddler (*excludes lunch)

Entry fee includes a light lunch* and a sausage sizzle at the finish line. (we recommend you bring additional food and water) All paddlers will receive an event T-shirt!
