The SUP 11 City Tour is the longest and one of the hardest SUP races in the world. It is a five day event where you paddle about 40km per day, 220k (136 miles) in total for 4-8 hours every day in erratic weather that can range from sunny 27°C to stormy, rainy 11°C.
Besides the ultimate challenge the SUP 11-City Tour is also an unique experience. Over 100 national and international paddlers get to know Friesland from the water. Open fields with windmills, cows, and sheep will present itself along the water ways exchanged by eleven historical cities built from 1700 onwards. Participants paddle the original waterways, where the ice skaters started conquering this historical tour 101 years ago on frozen waters. SUP 11-City Supporters come from all over the country and from all over the world to Friesland to encourage participants from bridge to bridge, and from town to town. It was ranked #10 of the world’s toughest endurance races by the Huffington post.
