Bradford Central PRU join the race and become the first school to enter the Lord Mayor's Dragon Boat Festival which will take place at Roberts Park in Saltaire on Saturday 7th May.

If you have staff or governors who also want to joint the race and promote their school, have fun and raise money for a worthwhile cause then go on to the website and complete an online registration at www.LMABRADFORDDBF.CO.UK.

For more information watch the promotional video https://youtu.be/jR7ufYmcGFA.  Last year 10,000 people attended - this year it will be even bigger!

One of the charities being supported this year is Bradford Hospital's Children's Charity. They are building a new state of the art facility for acutely poorly children at the BRI. Whilst they will provide the essentials, the charity is helping fund the added extras e.g. sensory room, multi gym room for children with cystic fibrosis, innovative distraction toys and games, beds for parents etc. Please help us raise the funds by participating/sponsoring teams/spreading the word.


With the quality of teams registering it means that everyone is going to have to step up a gear this year to prepare for the battle if they want to win.

We are going to help a lucky team by giving them a head start. Read on as it could make a big difference to your team!

The Lord Mayor is going to hold an exciting prize draw and all teams that have registered with Race the Dragon by 5pm Friday 29th January will be eligible to be included in the draw.

The team drawn will receive a free training session (led by an international coach) and the session will be at Bradford Council's fantastic Doe Park (Denholme) so you don't have to travel too far. We will deliver the training either in March or April (date to be arranged with the team drawn, the coach and Doe Park). It will help them prepare for the festival and give them a winning start.

If you have not yet registered then please don't miss this fantastic opportunity. Our chosen coach has coached winning national and international teams so you will be trained by the best in the field.

For those who have already registered then you have already made it over the first hurdle - good luck to all in the draw.
