The Franklin Challenge

The Franklin Challenge – Sunday June 25th

What Is It?

A 20 km circumnavigation of Franklin Island by paddle (kayak, canoe or SUP) to raise funds for Treetops Community Forest.   A shorter route option of 5-8 kms is available for those not wishing to do the full 20 kms.  It’s definitely not a walk in the park ~ this is a challenge for intermediate paddlers. If unsure, but strong and keen, consider paddling a tandem kayak with a friend. You will have the time of your life!  

Thank you to our Amazing Sponsor!

A huge thanks and shout out to all our amazing sponsors. We’re so lucky to be part of such a supportive community.

How Does This Work?

Simply register online with a minimum $50/paddler donation HERE .  Please note limited registration, and registration ends on Monday, June 19th at 5pm.  

Each registrant receives a jar of local Crofter’s Organic Just Fruit Spread & each paddling group is provided, compliments of White Squall & Adventure Maps, with a waterproof Franklin Island map.

We’ll get in touch and answer any questions you have.  We will also ask if you know what you’re doing, where you’re going and why you’re doing it!
