Event Details

Welcome to the 2025 edition of Winchester’s Pedal Paddle Pace event.

20km Bike Ride

Ride on roads in the city of Winchester and surrounding countryside.

Winchester PPP - Kayak_2

2km Kayak

Kayak on the River Itchen, kayaks and buoyancy aids supplied by the organisers.

Winchester PPP - run

5km Run

Run along the Itchen Canal.

The event is chip timed, but the transitions between each stage are NOT included in the overall time.

This is set by limits on the number of participants in the kayak stage at any given time, due to respect for the river.

About The Organisers

The organisers are part of the Winchester Round Table family which comprises four member groups.

Ladies Circle (a group for Ladies aged 18-45), Tangent (Ladies 45+), Winchester Round Table (a group for Men aged 18-45) and 41Club (men 41+).

If the event raises more than costs incurred, Winchester Round Table family is raising money for motor neurone disease association (MNDA) which is a life-affecting disease impacting the lives of our members, and we will donate funds raised to the MNDA and Winchester Beacon.

Ethical Activities objective is to reduce antisocial behaviour and positively engage young people with the outdoors. Our work is only possible with the support of the Winchester PPP.

Tom Foster
Founder - Ethical Activities

Our Kayaks, Buoyancy Aids and Water Safety are a partnership with Ethical Activities CIC

Ethical Activities is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company Social Enterprise, based around three principles, Safe, Fun, Learning.

Founded by the two directors who met on the River Themes and later lived and worked together at an activity centre in the New Forest, they set out to do business differently.

They realised that the outdoors isn’t free for everyone, and many people face barriers to access it, so they created Ethical Activities CIC.

With Tom in the New Forest and Stu in Devon, they drive to deliver Safe, Fun, Learning Experiences, Instructor Training, Technical Advise and Organisational Operational Guidance, as well as making access to these activities and courses, achievable for people that need it.

They run some highly successful programmes, such as Carvers Kayak Club in the New Forest, a local kayak club in partnership with the local community centre for young people, which is free to access. The main objective is to reduce antisocial behaviour, engage young people with the outdoors positively, and help build a community of young people to develop the local area. This has been hugely successful and continues to grow every year.

None of this would have been possible without the support of the Winchester PPP.

The partnership between the PPP and Ethical Activities, where the PPP own the kayaks and safety kit while Ethical Actvities store and maintain it year round, allows the not-for-profit company to focus on reducing other barriers for people to access the outdoors.
