Leeds Dragon Boat Race 2020

17 May 2020 - 9:00 AM  |  Roundhay Park, Leeds
Price: £350.00
2020 will be the thirteenth year for the Leeds Dragon Boat Race in aid of Martin House! The Dragon Boat Race is a unique corporate or group team-building event and family fun day that helps to support hundreds of children and young people across the region. 


How does it work?
The race takes part over one day and each team will take part in a minimum of three 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 between 8 - 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 is guaranteed to be a great day out. All we ask is that you are over 16 (anyone under the age of 18 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 lake there will be refreshments and a range of activities available throughout the day for the whole family. Please do encourage spectators as it's a fantastic event for everyone! 

Please raise some sponsorship
In addition to the entry fee which secures your boat, we ask that each team collectively raises a minimum of £1000 sponsorship - that's just £100 per person. A full fundraising pack will be provided for each team to guide you along the way.

What does the entry fee cover?
  • Entry into a minimum of three races
  • Complimentary team photo
  • Dragon boat provided
Prizes
  • 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophies and medals for winning participants
  • Best dressed team - encourage your team to pick a theme and get dressed up!
  • Best fundraising team – raise as much money as possible and win a prize
Tug of War
You can also enter a team of 8 - 10 people in the Tug of War competition. Entry is just £65 per team.

Gazebos
For an additional £65 we can have a gazebo on site waiting for you on the day. There is limited availability for gazebos, so please ask to reserve these for the day when making your booking.
