will take place on the 13th of May 2017

at Žluté lázně, Podolské nábřeží 3/1184, 140 00 Praha 4-Podolí

The 7th Rotary Dragon Boat Charity Challenge is a part of the 20th Prague Dragon Boat Festival -
the oldest Dragon Boat race in Czech Republic - organized by Czech Dragon Boat Association.

The Rotary Dragon Boat Charity Challenge is fast becoming the premier charity event of a Prague Spring. It’s an event that combines Team-building, Corporate social responsibility, live entertainment and family fun in one great programme. The sight of teams of highly motivated paddlers going all out for the finish line makes an exciting spectacle that draws big crowds. 

We expect more than 30 teams to enter, have fun and compete to win the much coveted Charity Challenge trophy and the honour of being 2016 champions.

This event is not just about the dragon boat racing, although that is the most exciting part of Prague’s Dragon Day. It is also about raising money for local charities that do invaluable work in supporting and helping those in need. It’s a unique opportunity for companies and organisations to get their brand and their name attached to the great causes that are being supported and to raise their profile.  Our 2016 main charity partners are ŽIVOT 90, an organisation providing a wide range of services for senior citizens and Nadace Naše Dítě who offer much needed help and support for many children in very difficult circumstances.

Spectators line the banks of the Vltava to admire the exciting spectacle of the dragon boats themselves as well as the creative costumes of the paddlers.

No experience is necessary to take part. If you can get at least 17 people together you can bring a team and be part of this great event. One thing you can be sure of – you’ll have lots of fun!
