Dragon Boat Race 2022: Newcastle Quayside


Back by popular demand, the Dragon Boat Race is returning to Newcastle Quayside once again this September for a fun-filled day of racing down the River Tyne!


The charity challenge will see teams of between 11 and 16 adrenaline junkies (plus one drummer) take to the Tyne in hopes of paddling their way to victory in dragon-decorated canoes.


Not got your sea legs? Fear not, because there’s tonnes of activities taking place on the Quayside to keep landlubbers entertained while cheering on the racers – from face-painting and Chinese dragon dancing to games and market stalls!


Better yet, money raised from the Dragon Boat Race will benefit the Children’s Heart Unit Fund (CHUF) – a brilliant local charity that supports kids and families undergoing cardiac treatment at Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital.


Check out CHUF’s website for more information about the Dragon Boat Race or to book your spot on a boat.
