5 Towns Dragon Boat Challenge 2017

2016 was yet another successful year for the 5 Towns Dragon Boat Challenge, but we always strive to make it even better year by year. This is why preparations have already begun for the race next year. The challenge will make its return on Saturday 17th June 2017, at the usual location of Knottingley Amphitheatre.

We are still aiming for greater involvement from the people and businesses within The Five Towns, which covers the areas of Castleford, Pontefract, Knottingley, Featherstone and Normanton.

Registration is now open so you can sign up your team today!

Whether you are a returning racer or new to the challenge – don’t worry, you will receive full training by Race the Dragon on the day!

Take advantage of our early bird offer and get a fantastic discount if you book before November 30th 2016.

Register your team here 

Get together a team of 11 of your friends, work colleagues, family etc and raise money for your chosen charity, and of course have great fun doing it!

If you don’t want to race, just come and show your support, it’s a fantastic community day with food, stalls and a bouncy castle for the children, alongside the race – a great community day!

If you feel you would be interested in this fantastic event, please feel free to email one of the organisers, we will be happy to provide you with more information and guidance on the race!
