40TUDE SUP Marathon - 16/06/18Curing Colon Cancer

Great news, the date of the sixth 40TUDE London SUP marathon has been announced. The marathon will take place on June 16, 2018. Stay tuned for information about registration! 

For the 2018 event, Active360 can provide you with all the necessary SUP equipment. We will also be running a series of training sessions on the Thames and Grand Union Canal beforehand. This allows you to get a feel for the water and improve your SUP skills and stamina. It's easy to learn the basics - most people can stand and paddle in a straight line after the first few sessions. Paddleboarding is recognised as a great way to stay in shape - it gives you a total body workout that strengthens all of your core muscles. Training for this event consists of a rigorous programme of varied exercise and time spent on the board learning technique and safety.

The fifth 2017 40TUDE London SUP Marathon was another great success on Saturday, June 10, 2017. More than 50 paddlers braved blustery winds and scorching summer sunshine while completing the full marathon distance of 26 miles from Shepperton to Putney on the River Thames.

By the end of June 2017, the particants' efforts had helped to raise a wonderful £20,000 to raise awareness of colon cancer. In the five years, the 40TUDE London SUP Marathon has raised more than £200,000 for St Marks Hospital Trus to progress its pioneering work on curing colon cancer. Congratulations to all the dedicated paddlers, especially many who have returned to take part year on year. We are proud to be helping in the organisation of this fun but challenging event. 

For the first time in 2017, we added an extra challenge. As if completing 26 miles was not enough, a few of the paddlers gamely gave some 4-person SUP Dragon boards a go for the last leg of the marathon, making the challenge of paddling as a team look easy by their arrival at the finish in Putney.
