9am - 4pm

Canbury Gardens, Kingston

The atmosphere, fun, excitement and energy of a dragon boat festival is second to none, as we found out last year at the 2016 Kingston Rotary Club Dragon Boat Race. It was, due to the absolute enthusiasm and competitive spirit brought to the day by our amazing paddlers, the best day Momentum could have hoped for. And we firmly believe that 2017 will be even more memorable. Why? We have four boats and our sights set on one of the trophies – at the very least ‘best fancy-dress costume’!

If you would like to help us paddle to victory, or beat the drums, and raise funds, please email now for more information – be quick as the boats are filling fast! We are asking for a £25 registration fee and minimum sponsorship pledge of £100 per paddler. Novices are welcome, no previous experience is needed, just the will to win and a sense of humour!

The riverside festival on the banks of the Thames in central Kingston is a great, fun day out too, so why not round up your family, friends, and come along to help cheer us to victory.

Check out our 2016 paddlers, to give you a flavour of what it's all about. All the crew were complete novices, with a touch of competitive spirit! What a fantastic job #TeamMo!

As a member of #TeamMo you will get:

  • The best day out on the river Thames
  • A Momentum t-shirt
  • Support throughout with your fundraising
  • A huge thank you from all of us!

Fundraising tip: wear your Mo fancy-dress headgear on your commute or to take the dog for a walk and get everyone to sponsor you
