Dragon Boat Race
On Saturday 7th September, the annual Dragon Boat Festival will be taking place at Bewl Water. This is your opportunity to be part of this fantastic event!
The 2017 event raised over £107,000 for 50 different charities and more than 1,000 people competed in an amazing display of paddle power, excitement and fun. Since the event began in 1998, over £2.7 million has been raised for more than 400 local, national and international charities.
Crews of 16 paddlers (plus a drummer) race in Chinese style Dragon Boats over a 250 metre course. Crew members do not need to be super fit or skilled to be successful – all that’s required is teamwork and a good sense of fun!
We are looking for a Chartham Park team of 16 people – plus reserves – to take part for our Club charity Chestnut Tree House Hospice. Please speak to Annabel in the Gym if you would like to be part of this year’s event.
Each person will need to raise a minimum of £100, come on, take on the challenge!
