#TeamMoxie needs YOU!

Looking for a challenge? Prefer to be part of a team for the motivation, fun and moral support? Come and join #TeamMoxie at events throughout the year. Even the more competitive ones have a highly social side and make for fun days/weekends. Come and challenge, and probably surprise yourself, with like-minded adventurous people!

If you’re interested in joining #TeamMoxie for any of these events, or are perhaps a little unsure, please get in touch and let’s chat. Equally, if you know of other events you think we’d be interested in, just let us know! There are so many exciting events out there we’re spoilt for choice!

Where we’ve been and dates for your diaries …

April

19th
Head of The Dart
From Totnes to Dartmouth join #TeamMoxie to paddle this iconic 8 mile course through Devon’s picturesque Dart Valley, either at a leisurely cruising pace or battle against the country’s finest SUP racers. Stormy wind and waters meant 2019 was a 10mile loop back to Totnes so we’ll be back in 2020 with fingers crossed for fair weather.

19th
Brighton Marathon
Clashing with Head of the Dart SUP Challenge (see above) and having achieved the much-coveted sub-4hr run in ’18, we missed out on this 20,000 strong race in ’19 but can highly recommend it. We can help you plan and train for this momentous day and the crowds will turn out in force to cheer you round the 26.2miles.
Battle of the Thames

May

#supbikerun (May, July, September)
Set in stunning locations these triathlons swap the traditional swim for SUP and both the bike and run sections are off road. With 2 distances to choose between, are you a Warrior or a Barbarian, you can challenge yourself or really challenge yourself!
Arrive early and take part in Saturday’s free workshops and SUP classes, some of which are often delivered by #TeamMoxie.

Norfolk Broads Ultra
Part of the UK Paddle Endurance Series this is either a 2 day or 70km non-stop flat water race on the canals and rivers of the Norfolk Broads. Compete solo, in a team or as part of a relay (so no need to do the full thing 70km), we were on the SUP & Sail Adventure Escape in ’19 but very much hope to be there for ’20.

14th-21st & 23rd-30th
Croatia SUP & Sail Adventure Escape
We’re back for more exploring and adventure in 2020, join us for a week of SUP fun and adventure as we island hop around the Dalmatian Coast exploring the stunning coastline from remote, secluded bays to its medieval towns. Daily options include SUP, sailing, SUPYoga/Fitness , hike, bike, yoga / fitness on land, as well as swimming and snorkeling. No previous experience required, just a sense of adventure and a smile!

June

Thames Ultra, UK Paddle Endurance Series
A one day flat water race that goes with the flow of the River Thames, choose between the 45km or the 75km endurance challenge from Henley on Thames (or Bray Lake) to Teddington.

July

4th-5th (tbc) Paddle Round the Pier
The largest free charity beach festival in Europe is right on our doorstep offering 2 days of events, races, music, demos and general festivities to get involved in. A few of our favourites include the Big Paddle, Pups on SUPS and Paddle Something Unusual.

August

31st July-1st August
Trent100
We’re so excited this 100 km event is back. Over 2 days we’ll cross three counties, from Staffordshire to the finish line in Nottingham, enduring and enjoying along with 100+ like-minded adventurers. We’ll be fed and watered at the halfway camp and treated to a party you won’t forget to round off the weekend.

Brighton Big Dog MTB
One of the UK’s top MTB events, this is a 6 hour race, either solo, pairs or as a team with only one on the course at any one time. Complete as many laps of the Stanmer Park circuit as you can before the 6pm cut off. 2020 will be a first for #TeamMoxie!

31st
Round Jersey Ultra
This epic challenge circumnavigating Jersey and tackling one of the highest tidal ranges in the world, can be swan, canoe/kayaked, rowed, SUP’ed or ran. Take your pick and join us in 2020.

September

Round Hayling Island Challenge
This iconic eventopen to windsurfers, SUPs and canoes aims to appeal to both experienced competitors and less experienced riders. Challenge yourself to the full 14-mile circumnavigation or opt for the 9-mile course which runs along the more sheltered side of the island. 2019 was our first year attending and we opted for the full 14 miles!!

8th-15th & 17th-24th
Croatia SUP & Sail Adventure Escape
A week long adventure full of SUP, sail, yoga, hike, bike, fitness sessions, as well as relaxation and exploring this beautiful country, accompanied by good food and good company. Let the good times roll!

Great Glen Challenge, UK Paddle Endurance Series
A one or two day 92km race across the width of Scotland, we’ve opted for the 2 day event paddling in daylight and taking in the breathtaking scenery as we SUP from Fort William via Fort Augustus and onto the mighty Loch Ness. It was grueling yet epic in 2019, we’ll be in Croatia for the 2020 event but why not train with us and represent #TeamMoxie with our support.

British SUP Club Championships, Bray Lake
Not (yet) quite enough of us to take on the biggest and best of the UK’s SUP Clubs independently, in 2019 #TeamMoxie was on the start line as part of our local club, Lagoon Watersports.

October

SUP The Creek, Kingsbridge, Devon
It’s back and we’re hoping to be there. This ‘flat water’ race over 1km, 6km or (what we’ve opted for) the full 12.5km, looks set to be an exciting finale to the UK SUP calendar .. we can’t wait!

December

8th
Paris Nautic
Celebrating its 10th year in 2019 this iconic race through the heart of Paris is now the biggest paddle race in the world with 1000 competitors. We’re not 100% we’ll be there in ’19, but it’s on our radar for 2020.
