1.9 Mile Inflatable Float
The float will begin at Hereford Rowing Club, which if you don't know already that's where you will find our main stage and our incredible entertainments area. The distance is pretty simple, go with the flow and paddle downstream for approximately 1.9 miles. This has taken participants anywhere between 1 hour and 3 hours to complete, It is not a competition. You are guaranteed to see many local sights including the; Old Bridge, Hereford Cathedral and King Georges and the Bartonsham Dairy Fields from a distance. Once completed, there will be a short walk, guided by our volunteers to a nearby shuttle bus service which will take you back to the main events area. Please watch the videos below.
