Dragon Boat Race

The Annual Al-Noor Boat Race
The Dragon Boat Race promises an unforgettable experience for participants and spectators. Whether you’re a seasoned paddler or a first-time enthusiast, this thrilling adventure has a place for everyone.

A day filled with adrenaline-pumping action, teamwork and camaraderie, all in the name of community and charity. 

The Format:

Dragon boat racing is a forward-facing rowing competition with 16 rowers and 1 drummer at the bow.  The specialist dragon boat company will provide a cox who will steer from the rear. No previous experience is required as each team will be inducted individually on the day.

You can be safe in the knowledge that your safety is our number one priority, and we are working with a specialist dragon boat events company who is providing all legal, health and safety, and public liability cover for the event.

The Location:

Fairlop Waters, Forest Road Barkingside, Essex, IG6 3HN
It is easily accessible from the M25, via the A12, also from the city of London, via the A11 and A12. It is also conveniently positioned for ease of transport via the Central Line to Fairlop and Barkingside stations, which are only a short walk to the complex.
