You could win big at the Bahrain National Day dragon boat race

National Day is coming up on December 16, and we can’t wait for all the celebrations.

Excitement for the big day is already building – and with good reason, because you could win more than BHD400 in prizes at the Grand National Day Dragon Boat Race.

Organised by Bahrain Rowing, there will be a number of races including distances of 500m and 250m by mixed groups of six men and four women.

Entry will set you back BHD170 between now and December 6, with groups who enter after this date charged BHD190 as a late fee. The last day a team can enter is December 14.
The races, which will take place between 6am and noon on December 16, will be held in Bahrain Bay.

If you’re after more sporting events, don’t forget an ironman event is being held in Manama on December 7.
