What is it?

St. Rocco’s Hospice's Dragon Boat Race is a fantastic team building opportunity to fundraise for St. Rocco’s Hospice whilst competing against other local teams on the River Mersey. Dragon Boat Racing has established itself as one of the country’s favourite mass participation water sports; so if you haven’t tried it before save the date for our 2018 race!
