The ultimate team-building event with lots of family fun for spectators! The Leeds Dragon Boat Race sees 42 teams of ten, plus a drummer, take to the lake at Roundhay Park to compete to be the champions.

Every team gets the chance to compete in at least three races, as we hold a series of heats, followed by semi-finals and then the grand finals.

There's so much to enjoy - we encourage our teams to dress up, with prizes for the best fancy dress, as well as the best fundraisers. Enjoy the spectacle from the lakeside, and check out the Tug O' War contest also taking place throughout the day. There are also family friendly activities including fairground rides, face painting and plenty of food and refreshments.

It costs teams £350 to register for the races, with a further £65 to enter the Tug O' War. Teams must be registered in advance of the day, through our website, but it's completely free to come down and watch the action.
