For the fourth year running this exciting Dragon Boat Racing event is coming to Reading. A day filled with fun and energy, it's a great chance to take part in something a little different.


Full training is given on the day and your instructor will be on hand throughout to talk you through everything you need to know.

Who can take part

Crews will need 16 paddlers and 1 drummer to compete. We are looking for individuals to join our Daisy's Dream boat, or you can create a team of your own.

You need to be aged at least 16 on race day to be in a crew.

Costs and fundraising target

The entry fee is £500 per team if you are organising your own boat. In addition to this entry fee (which goes directly to the event organisers Race the Dragon to pay for the boat hire, event costs, insurance etc.) you are also required to donate a minimum of £500 to your selected charity. This minimum charity donation of £500 can be donated automatically upon entering (by choosing the 'corporate booking' option when entering the race and therefore paying £1,000 to register your team) or can be done through an online fundraising page (the link to which must be provided upon booking.) 

Alternatively, you can join our Daisy's Dream crew for a £30 deposit and a minimum fundraising commitment of £50 per person. To comply with the entry rules set by Race the Dragon, all fundraising for members of the Daisy's Dream boat crew must be done through our Dragon Boat fundraising page.

We are also really pleased to be able to offer Daisy's Dream t-shirts for you to wear on the day. We have four sizes available, and they can be purchased using the form below.
