Oars at the ready!

Get your colleagues, friends and family together and join us for an unmissable adrenaline-fuelled fun day on the Lagan for our 2023 Dragon Boat Race! 

On Friday 8th September local businesses, friends, families, and clubs will battle it out for a chance to be crowned the Dragon Boat Emperors!

The Dragon Boat Race is a unique and exciting event, giving companies, clubs and organisations a tremendous team-building opportunity, whilst raising invaluable money for our charity.

No previous experience is required, just the will to win and a sense of humour! Full training will be given on the day. 

To add to the fun, teams are encouraged to come in fancy dress (Pirates, Vikings, etc - you can be as creative as you like!) and a prize will be awarded to the best-dressed teams!


All you need to do is:

  • Put the date in your diary!
  • Get a team of twenty people who want to have a great day’s craic
  • Register your interest in taking part in the form below and a dedicated fundraiser will be in touch!
  • Each team member must raise a minimum of £250 to take part or £5,000 per boat.
  • A deposit of £500 will secure your boat and will go towards your final fundraising total.

Registration is now open and the boats will fill up fast for this hugely popular event so sign up today for some 'oar-some fun'!
