About the Dragon Boat Race event


The Hospice UK Dragon Boat Race is back again at Surrey Quays Docklands. Challenge your team, colleagues, friends or family to a race and join us for this fun and unique event to support Hospice UK.

Each boat holds 11 people (10 paddlers and 1 drummer) and will race across the Docklands, competing against other teams to be crowned the fastest on the day. There is a prize for a fastest team and the team who's raised the most on event day - will you be the winner?

This event is open to new-comers as no previous experience is necessary and people of all abilities can take part. All the boats, necessary equipment and a full safety briefing will be provided on the day.
