Don’t miss this high-action event as Dragon Boat Racing arrives in Marathon for the ONLY beach-launch boat race of its kind. Bring a team or come and watch as boats race along a 400-meter course parallel to Sombrero Beach.

This is an authentic tropical setting for dragon boat racing by launching directly from the beach. No splinters from wooden piers, no bouncing on floating docks. Just soft sand between your toes in 80+ degree water, coupled with the splendor, warmth and allure of the Florida Keys,

A portion of this year’s event proceeds benefits Reef Relief, a global nonprofit membership organization dedicated to preserving and protecting living coral reef ecosystems. Every dragon boat team is encouraged to gather pledges for a charity of their choice with a grand prize awarded for the highest amount of money raised by an individual.
