Entry forms


It is so easy to enter!

Some important notes:
  • As from 18 July there is not sufficient time for us to process your entry via post. Therefore, please email it to us and we shall email the confirmation pack back to you. Please do not BACS your entry fee to us but bring it on the day. Thank you very much.
  • We ask all rafts to support us in raising loads of sponsorship for Heart of England Mencap so we are asking each raft to commit to raising a minimum of £100 sponsorship. Recently the most raised by one raft was over £4000! but with an average donation amount of £270 per raft we are sure you can do as well or better than that.
  • All crews are required to design and build their own rafts and paddles using begged, borrowed but not stolen materials. See the raft specification download below for some compulsory raft design specifications and for further advice please go to the Raft Design Hints.
  • Every member of crew is required to wear a buoyancy aid at all times whilst on the river.

The entry pack contains everything you need to enter the race so please ensure mobile numbers and email addresses are completed should we have to contact you. The entry fee is £15.00 per person which contributes toward our costs such as all the waterborne safety crews, medical stations, toilets, PA system, telecoms and much more.

There are two type of forms you can use. The electronic version can be opened and filled in using Adobe Reader and then emailed to us when completed. The manual version can be printed and filled in by hand and posted to us.

Please note that the Windows 10 Edge browser doesn’t know what to do with pdf forms. Accordingly, please use a different browser to download these forms.

Some simple and common sense topics which cover safety and behaviour on the river toward other users, wildlife and the environment.

There is no such thing as a standard raft but these notes provide some mandatory requirements and guidance about raft design. Please also see the raft design hints page which offers a lot of good practical advice.
