Be Richmond Get On Board Registration

Greater London
sup - Up to 100 people



BeRichmond Get on Board 2021 is now sold out. We are going to be running a waiting list, so to have a chance of booking your slot please email with your name, the number of people in your party and whether you are beginners, returners renting a board, or own board users. The waiting list will be operated on a first come-first served basis.

Welcome to Get on Board 2021, which this year takes place on Thursday 9th September. You'll be paddling from Kew Bridge to River Lane, Richmond collecting plastic from the river along the way.

The main aims of Get on Board 2021 are to highlight the problem of plastic pollution in our waterways, and the effect this has on our environment.

It’s also about building on the success of 2019's amazing edition and creating a great Richmond community event involving residents, businesses, workers and charities back on on the water and on the towpath.

Your fee includes entrance to the event, plus a drink and snack at the post-event reception.


If you are renting a board and have not paddled with an Active360 company before, then you must sign-up at the beginners’ price of £34. You must then book and take a two-hour paddle board lesson with Active360 at either their Richmond, or Kew Bridge sites at the specially subsidised BeRichmond price of £1. These sessions are a great introduction to paddling, and are usually charged at £59! Once you have signed up you will be sent booking information for one of these sessions.

Returning Paddlers Hiring a Board

If you have paddled on the Thames with an Active360 company before, but you need to rent a board on the day, then you can sign up as a returning paddler for £25.

Returning Paddlers with Own Board

For those who have their own kit/board and who want to take part in the event you can sign up for £15.

NB please don't be confused by the term ‘Add-ons’ (it’s part of the booking system and something we can’t change). For this event, the ‘Add-ons’ are actually discounts

What to bring

No specialist clothing is required, but no jeans or cotton please, as cotton gets very cold when wet. In warm weather, swimwear or ordinary quick drying gym gear will be fine (shorts/leggings/T-shirt/fleece), with old sandals or trainers you don't mind getting wet. Or you can get cheap neoprene wet shoes from most large supermarkets. No bare feet please, footwear is required at all our departure point.

If possible please arrive wearing the clothes you intend to paddle in, and please don't forget sun protection!

If you are bringing your own kit then you must paddle in a PFD/Buoyancy Aid). All paddlers on Port of London Authority water are required to wear a personal flotation device.
