What a fantastic start to the river running season for the Cumbria Young paddlers.
11 paddlers in all joined in on a parkNplay session and river run at the Killington Road Bridge site on the Lune.
Interestingly we had x4 “Dads and Lads” partnerships, which is to be encouraged - quality time with their sons!
After lunch and despite the low water levels a small group managed to get a second run down the more challenging stretch from the wooded footpath that follows the river upstream.
Two new youngsters were put through their paces with a skills workshop and have been welcomed to the group
Any clubs or individuals that may have students or youngsters that may be interested in joining the “Youth River Running” group, please check out the details on the Cumbria Canoeists website and contact Mike Sunderland, the Regional Coaching Rep on Coaching.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next river run will be Sunday 11 November, hoping to run the River Leven or River Tees, with plenty of opportunities scheduled for December.
