Crossy's Corner | The Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race Special

About the video

The Devizes to Westminster International Canoe race is an ultra marathon that takes place every Easter weekend and is the longest non-stop canoe race in the world.

Starting in Devizes in Wiltshire, the race travels down the Kennet and Avon Canal until it joins the River Thames at Reading, then follows the River Thames to Westminster in the heart of London.

Unfortunately the Global Pandemic means that the real life race is unable to happen, but the innovative team at DW have teamed up with Ludum to run the race virtually in an event called MyDW – more details can be found here: https://www.dwrace.org.uk
