Welcome to Wildwater Canoeing

Wildwater Canoeing is a discipline of canoe racing, also known as Wildwater Racing and Whitewater Racing. The wildwater time trial is the purest of whitewater racing forms - the athlete, the river, the clock.

A racing performance is the result of physical conditioning, skill and harmony with the water - and is the only sport where social paddling is necessary to achieve a peak performance. Beautiful water, scenery and companionship make the Wild Water Racing experience compelling. The competitor is free to take whichever route on the river they desire, a freedom of racing unsurpassed in the whitewater world. 

Wildwater Canoeing is governed by British Canoeing

Burrs Water Levels

There are floods and heavy rain forecast for this weekend which will affect the Irwell race at the Burrs Activity Centre.

We will be reviewing the river levels and confirming tomorrow. At this stage we will be planning to go ahead but the level will not be suitable for novices or inexperienced paddlers. Club Coaches or individual paddlers will need to make their own decisions on whether to compete.

The river level gauges are at https://www.riverlevels.uk/irwell-bury-bury-ground#.VkY2Xnknypo
