The minimum entry age is 16, or 13+ if accompanied by an adult or guardian.

I DON'T OWN A SUP BOARD!

Don’t worry! We always have a limited amount of tickets at each event that include SUP board hire. Your tickets also includes free paddle board tuition on the Saturday before the main event.

I CANNOT PADDLE BOARD!

Don’t worry, your ticket includes free paddle board tuition. Our events are staged over two days, the Saturday is dedicated to paddle board tuition with classes for total beginners, right through to seasoned pro’s! We also have SUP Yoga classes teaching you perfect balance, and how to relax and feel at ease on the water.

WHY IS IT A 2-DAY EVENT?

We deliver our events over two days to ensure you experience a real weekend adventure. Each SUPBIKERUN venue has camping, meaning you can join us for a long weekend, bring your friends, family, and have an amazing time.

The Saturday is not compulsory to attend but is when we run our free paddle boarding sessions. We have a highly experienced team of coaches that run classes throughout the day, enabling you to brush up on your skills. Our free classes include SUP Taster for absolute beginners, SUP Pro for those looking to improve their technique and speed, and SUP Yoga to help your relax and stretch.

Our free classes are also open to your friends and family, they can purchase a wristband (£10) to gain water access and classes.

CAN WE CAMP?

Yes! We actively encourage you to join us for the weekend, to bring your friends and family, and all venues for 2022 have limited camping available.

In most cases, camping can be added to your ticket at the time of booking (EtchRock), occasionally, some venues (Ullswater, The Lakes) prefer you to book directly.

WHAT IS ETCHROCK?

EtchRock is our ticket partner. Once you have selected the event on our website that you would like to attend you will follow a link to our page on EtchRock. Here you can book your tickets, select insurance if required, and in most cases book your camping.
