One of the key areas of focus for British Rafting is Raft Racing.

British Rafting Raft Race Series

The Raft Race Series are events held across the UK each year which are open to both amateur and professional teams. Tickets will be released through our social media accounts and available for purchase on this website as they become available.

Two events each year will be designated IRF Euro Cups – one in the R4 and one in the R6 format. Scores at each of these events contribute to the overall IRF Euro Cup series.

GB Raft Racing Team Selections

British Rafting are the body responsible for selecting the teams to represent Great Britain at the International Rafting Federation (IRF) competitions each year. Details on selections can be found on the Selections page.

Raft Racing Categories

The official rules to which British Rafting adhere are the International Rafting Federation Raft Race Rules. At some of our Race Series events we may amend these rules to suit the conditions, competitors or the venue. Where possible, these will be advised in advance of the event. Full explanations of the individual race categories can be found on the Race Categories page.
