Newark Dragon Boat Race 2020

20 September @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

After the success of our 2019 Dragon Boat Race, we are delighted to be holding a 2020 event!

Dragon boat racing is the fastest growing water activity in Britain today – as well as the most fun! Up to 10 people paddle each 30’ boat with a drummer at the front beating time. No previous experience is required, just plenty of team spirit!

Fundraising for Beaumond House and the Children’s Bereavement Centre.

How does it work?
The race takes part over one day and each team will take part in a minimum of 3 races before the fastest team goes through to the semi-final. The boat and life jackets are provided; all you need to do is recruit a team! Each boat needs 10 paddlers and a drummer to keep the rhythm, however you can also bring up to 4 reserves if you wish.

Who can enter?
Anyone. Whether you are a group of friends, a sports club or entering through a company, this will be a great day out for you. All we ask is that you are over 16 (16 and 17-year olds will need written permission from a parent/guardian) and that you are able to swim 50 metres.

Entertainment
As well as the main action taking place on the river there will be refreshments and a range of activities available throughout the day for the whole family. Please do encourage spectators – all welcome.
