Irwell 2, Wild Water Race Northern Counties Series Regional Race
Sunday 19th March 2016
CLASSIC AND SPRINT COURSE
The course runs through the Burrs Activity Centre Site from just below the weir on the River Irwell at the top through down to below the road bridge to the get-out at the bottom of the site, river left (i.e. on the left hand side of the river looking down-stream). One of the major advantages of the Burrs is a mill stream running alongside and above the River Irwell that allows race participants to paddle back up to the start and to get as many runs in as possible.
