Annual Raft Race
Saturday 1st July
This Saturday from 2.00pm Millmead
Come and watch - great fun
So now is the time to get your crew together, start building your raft and entering the race. As usual the race will run from Millmead in the middle of Guildford and down the River Wey to the finish at the Waterside Centre, Stoughton where there will be showers and changing facilities, a BBQ, and a pay bar. Trophies will be awarded including one for the best turned out raft and crew. This years theme is “THE MOVIES” so plenty of choice!
For the first time there will be a class for PADDLEBOARDERS as well as classes for Super/Special Rafts, General Rafts, Ladies Rafts, Youth Rafts, and Human Propelled Rafts.
Rafters should aim to raise at least £100 from sponsorship for Guildford Lions Charity Trust or their own nominated charity. The entry fee is £30.00 per raft, £10.00 for a paddleboard.
The event will be covered live by BBC Radio Surrey and the local media.
