Dragon boat racing is one of the most colourful and exhilarating water sport activities in the UK and we’re excited to launch our 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 17 will take part in a minimum of three races, all 200m each, after which the winning team will be awarded the coveted Dragon Trophy!

You don’t need any prior experience to take part as our experts from Dragon Boat 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 17, (16 rowers and one drummer), register and then raise some money!

2021 saw an amazing turn out with a stunning array of teams from across the region.
