River Runners is a local Philadelphia Dragon Boat Team, made up of a diverse group of paddlers interested in the camaraderie, exercise and competition on the water that a dragon boat team can provide.

Practices:  Tuesdays 7 pm to 8 pm, June through August (subject to change) 

We practice on the Schuylkill river, leaving from the Black Road dock, near the adaptive rowing boathouse, on West River Drive / Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive,

the first parking lot downriver from the Montgomery Drive entrance to MLK Drive (39.981563 -75.205818 for those of you who like to plug in coordinates to GPS or Google Maps)


In 2015, we are participating in three races:

• The Independence Dragon Boat Festival (Schuylkill River) Saturday, June 6

• The Finger Lakes International Dragon Boat Festival (Ithica NY) Saturday, July 11

• The Mercer County Dragon Boat Festival (Mercer Lake, NJ) Saturday, September 12
