World Championship Coracle Race

About

The River Severn in Shrewsbury will be filled with the thrills and spills of world championship coracle racing later this year as a major charity event makes a welcome return.

The Macmillan World Championship Coracle Race, sponsored by Galliers, will take place on the afternoon of Friday 13th September - and teams are being urged to sign up as soon as possible.

The event will see teams of four paddle a traditional coracle boat in a relay race across the river, with the winners being crowned world champions. It raised about £45,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support last year, and organisers are hoping to beat that total this September.
