About Chester Raft Race
The Chester Raft Race is an annual charity event taking place every July in the Groves on the River Dee and organised by the Rotary Club of Chester. The rafts race against the clock over an approximate 400 metre course starting just upriver of the Royal Chester Rowing Club, passing under the pedestrian Suspension Bridge to a finish on the north bank of the river just above the weir. Although the race is over at this point, the rafts then have to retrace their route back to the launch area on the Meadows (source).
It’s a great family-day out and is a very popular attraction in the City… so if you’re able to, come along and support us!
