One of the last updates about Stour Descent 2018.
Weather. Forecast looks wet and River Stour level on Sunday should be sufficient for the race. (however for us, organisers Thursday river cleanup might be challenging).
Payments. At this point we advise still to register online (deadline is Friday midnight), but probably won’t be enough time for the checks to arrive before Saturday. In this case we’ll accept either cash or check on the day (which I think is more convenient for both sides). Still, if you’re preregistered online entry fee is £12.
I want to stress that for all of us is more convenient to have as many participants registered online before the race. This way we can plan a slightly better start, we can group together people who want to paddle as a groups and you have less stress queuing etc.
Shuttle. You have to remember that parking spaces are limited at the start in Sturminster Newton. Please note, that SVCC is not providing shuttle from Bryanston School to Sturminster and back. In the past years that wasn’t a problem and people usually organised that by themselves.
