What better way to soak up the Riverfest atmosphere than out in the middle of the River Shannon with a team of your colleagues or friends, as you battle it out against other teams in a beginner friendly kayak relay race. Challenge, competition, friendly banter, fresh air, exercise & incredible sights – this event promises all this and more!

Which team will come out on top after tackling the River Shannon? There’s only one way to find out.

Early booking is advisable as there are limited spaces available.

Each relay race should take no more than 5 minutes to complete. Of course, it is a race, so you need to be as fast as possible to have any chance of making it to the next round. Does your team have what it takes?

We have amazing prizes on offer for the top three winning teams.

Prizes include:

1st Place – 4 tickets to the first game of the season in Thomond Park
2nd Place – Archery Tag team building experience with Get West for up to 12 people
3rd Place – Escape room game at Escape Limerick for up to 6 people
