Wednesday 4th September 2024
12pm – 7.00pm
After the success of last year’s inaugural Great Racing Welfare Boat Race, the event returns bigger and even better for 2024!
Teams will consist of 11 people including 1 drummer, but supporters and extra rowers to swap in and out are welcome. Each team will take part in a minimum of two races, with the fastest teams going through to the semis and a final.
Dragon boat racing is recognised as the most colourful, fastest growing and exhilarating water-based activity. Races will take place down a stretch of the River Thames, from a pontoon based near to the racecourse.
There will be a live DJ, various other competitions and entertainment throughout the afternoon and a best turned out competition with a prize for the best fancy dress or team kit!
No experience or training necessary.
£500 entry fee per team
£500 fundraising target per team
All funds raised will help the charity to provide vital support for people working in or retired from the racing industry.
Limited spaces available!
