“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” — Sir David Attenborough
All too often, we find our once-beautiful waterways blighted by litter. That harms wildlife locally and, ultimately, in the oceans, where plastics especially can take centuries to break down.
There’s a strong sense amongst organisers, participants and spectators of the Hurley Classic that it’s not enough to simply enjoy our rivers and aquatic ecosystems; it’s time to give back.
That’s why we want to help free the Thames from litter and make our event as environmentally friendly as possible — starting now, so our enjoyment today leaves a legacy of a better tomorrow.
