Oars at the ready for the 2018 annual Dragon Boat Races and Fun Day where you and your team will race against the competition to raise funds for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices!

Teams of 12-20 rowers will take to the waters of Goldsworth Park Lake on Sunday 3 June 2018 in colourful Dragon Boats and paddle furiously across the waters to be crowned the winners.

The races are traditionally started with a special ceremony for good luck performed by dancers and Chinese lions from the Chinese School of Woking. In addition to the spectacle of the races there will be lots to enjoy on the banks of the lake, including a BBQ, face-painting, plant stall, tombola, refreshments and much more.

No experience is required and all equipment is provided – just bring your energy and your warrior spirit! Participants aged from 12 to 18 must be accompanied by an adult in their team.

Registration is £25 per rower, with a suggested fundraising target of £50 per person. Click here for more information and to register now.
