The Ecover Blue Mile is a great mass participation event designed to get you involved in raising money for the WWF and their work towards protecting our rivers and seas, whilst also helping you keep active! All they ask is that you travel a mile in or along a local water way, whether it be on foot, canoe/kayak or stand-up paddle board!

The flagship event, the Ecover Blue Mile, takes place on the 8-9th September in Plymouth, during their new Marine City Festival. You can complete your mile in any way you like, and can even enter an aquatriathlon, where you’ll swim, kayak and SUP all in one event!

The first event this year will be in Twickenham, at the Twickenham Alive Blue Mile, where you can kayak or SUP. Alternatively you can set up your own event, just get register on their site, invite your friends, and they’ll put your event on the map!

Below is a video from last year’s events, so have a watch, become inspired and get involved!
