Newquay BID has been instrumental in encouraging new events and better event promotion in Newquay since 2011 so that all areas of the town benefit from additional footfall. The Joe Way Paddle for Life is a new addition to the BID’s portfolio of events.
The money invested by the BID has enabled the Joe Way Project to promote the event to a wider audience plus assist with improvements to infrastructure for the event.
Kate Cortez, Newquay BID Assistant Manager said, “The Joe Way Paddle for Life is an important event in Newquay’s calendar and hopefully, with the help of the Newquay BID, this already popular event will grow in popularity outside of Newquay and increase the foot fall from area outside of the town.”
This year’s event is already shaping up to be great with live music taking place throughout the afternoon and evening from Adam Issac, Ben Sutcliff, October Acoustic and Beachfield. There will also be an appearance from Newquay’s local robot Titan!
Paddlers and swimmers ages start from 5 years upwards and the entry fee is £10 per adult and £5 per child (under 18’s), which is paid on the day with everyone also getting a certificate and a discount for food with your paddle wrist band. The event is about family fun and everyone helps each other along. To watch, listen to the live music and enjoy Titan the Robot is free.
The event starts at 4.00pm, the last registration is when the wrist bands have gone or at 6pm and the final heat time in the water is 6.45pm so there is plenty of time to arrive when people have finished work and the lifeguard race is just after 7.00pm. Places did run out in 2014 so arrive in plenty of time
