Event Details

The Coracle Race

Take part in the quirkiest, craziest boat race in the UK (probably the world!).

Enter a team for the Coracle World Championships in Shrewsbury and have a great afternoon of Coracle chaos with your workmates, colleagues or friends. You’ll also be helping to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

  • The Coracle World Championships race takes place on a Friday afternoon in September, on the River Severn at the Pengwern Boat Club
  • Up to 48 Teams, comprising four people in each team, relay-race across the river in coracles – single person, circular boats with one oar to steer and paddle
  • After several heats, quarter finals and semi finals, the winners of the final race become World Champions! And, it’s all in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support
  • Team Registration for the race is £300 (for 4 people) and we ask each Team to additionally fundraise as much as possible to boost the funds. The 2022 Race raised over £35,500
  • It’s a brilliant day of fun and Coracle chaos. There’s food and beverages (a bar too), plus lot’s more
