Paddle, Plod & Pedal
Saturday, 28 September 2024

This multi-discipline challenge returns for another year!

This event follows a circular 35 mile route through beautiful Worcestershire countryside along the Rivers Avon and Severn and quiet country lanes.

Challengers will:

  • Paddle from Pershore to Tewkesbury
  • Plod from Tewkesbury to Severn Stoke
  • Pedal back to Pershore

This is an all-day challenge for teams of up to 10 to compete at their own pace – a real test of endurance but it’s not a race.

Teams of up to 10 people will set off in the bell boats from 7am. Each element of the challenge is between 10 and 12 miles, which will be completed as a team at their own pace.

Challengers will then be welcomed back in Pershore at the end of the challenge for well deserved refreshments and a medal to celebrate their success.


There is no entry fee for this challenge, however we would like you to pledge to raise £200pp or more per team towards our hospice care.

The PPP is the best event I have ever been involved in. I loved the team spirit that developed between us prior to and during the big day. I would recommend this event to anyone and everyone that is thinking of getting involved in supporting such an amazing charity as St Richards.
