We run a busy calendar of races at Stafford & Stone.
The year always kicks off with the Mini Slalom Series. This is a three race series on Sundays at the end of January and into February. It is open to all divisions and a handicap system means everyone is racing each other. Prizes are given out to the top paddlers in each division as well as the overall top three for each day once the handicap has been applied. On the final race the top 10 paddlers from the three races go head to head in a single run final to decide who will be crowned mini slalom champion.
Then throughout the year we hold three Div3/4 race weekends. Normally in March, July and October. These are ranking weekends and for many their first opportunity to take part in a ranking race and getting their first points, with people travelling from all over the country to compete. Entries are taken on the day but we would prefer you to enter online: www.canoeslalomentries.co.uk
For both the Mini and the Div3/4 races entries close at 10am. Free practice is available until 10.50am with racing starting at 11am. We aim to have the prize giving as soon as possible after the final run.
We do not have camping available on site unfortunately. You will have access to our clubhouse, with warm changing rooms and hot showers. Our fantastic catering team will keep you fed and hydrated with snacks and hot meals all day. Parking is available.
We also host the McConkey Prem race each year in May at Holme Pierrepont. This race is one of the highlights of the Prem calendar. Entries are taken online: ww.canoeslalomentries.co.uk
