We’re sorry to say that along with a number of events, The Dragon Boat Race has had to be postponed due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. It’s especially frustrating if you’ve been training hard or looking forward to your fundraising event.

As soon as a revised date has been arranged we will update this page so watch this space!

In the meantime if you would like to register your interest, please fill in our short form and a member of the team will be in touch.

Dragon Boat racing is one of the most colourful and exhilarating water sport activities and we’re excited to announce that you'll be able to part in our very first Dragon Boat Race in support of our sick kids.

Racing in traditional Dragon Boats on the canal next to The Mailbox in the heart of Birmingham, your team of ten paddlers and one drummer will take part in a minimum of three races, after which the winning team will be awarded the coveted Dragon Trophy!

You don’t need any prior experience to take part - our experts from Gable Events will brief all the teams on the day and support you through the various heats. All you'll need to do is get yourself into a team of 11, register as soon as a date is decided and then raise some money! 

This will be a great family fun day out, so please bring your friends and family along to help cheer you on and celebrate your achievement.
