Don't limit your challenges. Challenge your limits.



Ease yourself out of winter and simplify your preparation for the iconic Cambridge to Hamilton Paddle Race with the Starboard Spring Challenge Training Plan.  Whether you're new to paddling or just coming out of hibernation from the winter, here's your chance to set some new #supgoals and get back on the water!

What is the Spring Challenge?
Starboard Spring Challenge is a periodised 30-day training plan to help you prepare for the 11km and 23km cruising and competitive race distances of the Cambridge to Hamilton Waikato River Paddle.

We will send you the plan by email in early August, then weekly updates to keep you engaged and motivated.

Alongside paddling preparation you'll receive advice and tips on gear, nutrition and being ready for event day.

There will also be opportunities to join us for SUP skills workshops and a guided practice run on the Waikato River (with shared group transport) in the lead up to the Cambridge to Hamilton Event (which is Sunday 16 September).

Who is it for?
The Starboard Spring Challenge is suitable for both recreational and competitive paddlers and will help you increase your fitness, endurance and confidence.
