Birmingham Women’s & Children’s Hospital Charity Dragon Boat Race

THIS EVENT HAS ENDED

Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital Charity is set to host its inaugural Dragon Boat Race at Mailbox this September, making the most of the city’s iconic canals and raising money for the two hospitals.

Taking place on Saturday 25th September, the race will see 22 boats compete against one another, with several of Birmingham’s biggest businesses set to take part. Each team will compete in a series of races, which will culminate in one being crowned the first ever Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital Charity Dragon Boat Champions.

Kicking off at 10.30am, each team of 16 will participate in a series of 200m races, whittling them down to one overall winning boat. Teams will then be able to reward their efforts at one of Mailbox’s many eateries surrounding Canalside.
