Splash and Dash

IMG_2269.JPGMake a team, make a splash, make a difference

Jump into a six person KataKanu and race across the water at Rushden Lakes. Can your team battle it out to become the first winners of Spurgeons Splash and Dash?

If taking part doesn’t float your boat then why not cruise on by and keep a look out for your favourite crew! Incredible shopping opportunities at Rushden Lakes and a family fete feel on the  central boulevard will keep you entertained between the races.



IMG_2203.JPGSplash and Dash is the first ever challenge event to take place at the newly opened shopping, restaurant and wildlife complex. 48 teams of six will be racing in KataKanu’s across the lakes. The winners will take home the coveted challenge cup.

Taking place on Sunday 30 September, the event, run by Spurgeons, is in partnership with Rushden Lakes and Canoe2.

The races will kick off at 10am and there will be a real party family fun atmosphere with children’s activities, stalls and music. 

There’s still time to sign up and enter a team, so if you’ve ever fancied jumping in a boat with your friends, family or work colleagues and dashing across a lake, this is your chance. 

Alternatively, if getting on the water isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other ways to get involved: through sponsoring a team, volunteering on the day, or exhibiting at the event.
