Supporters & Volunteers

The village of Barrow upon Soar lies between Leicester and Loughborough in the Soar Valley, and the day’s events take place on the beautiful River Soar.

Barrow Upon Soar is famous for a dinosaur excavation and to add some extra excitement to this year’s race, we'll be bringing back the monsters!

Do come along to cheer on your team or simply to enjoy the day’s entertainment. 


On the day we will need volunteers to organise teams, help on refreshment stalls, collect donations and all manner of other useful activities.

If you think you can help and you’re aged over 18, please send your full name and telephone number in an email with Dragon Boat Volunteer in the subject line to our event organiser,
