Hello! The paddlerun is a new thing, with a few aims:
Its main aim is to raise awareness and some funds to care for the Zandvlei Estuary, and ideally move towards Dream Zandvlei, including becoming a global water sports tourism destination (see more at zpaac.org.za/dream-zandvlei/)
One of the founders like SUP, and the other one would like to learn how to SUP. Through other community activities that we’re involved in, we’d like to get other people from the communities around us to come SUPping too - like parkrun (parkrun.co.za/zandvlei), but also with a paddle. Unlike parkrun it is independentl...

Hi everyone, the paddlerun event for this Saturday has been postponed, again.

We're deeply sorry for this, we're down to one organiser and she fell sick.

Let us know if you're keen to join the team to make this happen!

PaddleRun! First we paddle (2km), then we run (5km). Individuals can do both, or enter as teams of two: one paddles, one runs.

It's not a race, anyone can do it no matter how slow you are or how many times you fall off!

Entry: R50pp

...

We have a sponsor now, so we can only supply SUPs. If you bring your own watercraft you can join us non competitively.

There will be prizes! Event entry link to come soon.

Hi all

With mixed feelings, we need to postpone the paddlerun.

The reason is a good one though: We have a good amount of interest, but the people we really want to launch this with can't make the date.

...

Please keep spreading the word, the new date will be shared principally via our Facebook page.

On that note, I can't find a place where the events in the Peninsula or, more importantly, water-related events in the catchment are listed. This makes it hard to find a date for something new if you're not in-the-know with e.g. the paddlers...

If you know of
1. Such a common calendar (the closest I could find is http://muizenbergfestival.co.za/events/2017-07/)
(I'm thinking I should wangle my way into the login of the source to sea website: http://sourcetosea.org.za/events/upcoming-events/)
2. Any specific calendars I can try get into a common calendar, please let me know?

regards
Bernelle

Here's the route:
On Sunday, 2 July at 8:30 sharp, we're jumping on the watercraft of our choice (K1, kayak, SUP, whatever you want), and paddling around Park Island.
Then we run the Zandvlei parkrun route.
The paddling is weather dependent.

...

Family friendly, beginners, pro's and well-behaved dogs welcome. Tell your friends!

If you need SUPs, please email Jon at hi@eventureza.com
(We don't have confirmation on the availability of the kayaks yet). If you're planning to come and have craft, also please email him so we know.

We'll be getting the SUPs from Xpression On The Beach - thanks for supporting us!

Proudly supported by the Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve (ZENR) and the Zandvlei Trust.

We're SUPping, but all sorts of paddlers welcome - canoeists do two laps.

Who's up for some paddling? We're taking up SUP, but paddlers of all sorts are welcome. We're making this an event to get some of our community people who can't afford a board to join in the fun!
