The 56th Monmouth Raft Race will be on Sunday 4th September 2022.
The raft race is a fun afternoon on the river. It starts at Noon at Monmouth Rowing Club (Just off the A40 at Monmouth) and rafts are paddled over 6.5 miles down the beautiful River Wye to the finish at Tump Farm, Whitebrook, (courtesy of the Cullimore Family) where there is a Family Festival of entertainment and ample refreshment opportunities.
Why not ask your employer, or pub landlord, to enter a raft on your behalf. Constructing a raft and taking part is a great team building activity. Lots of fun for you, good publicity, and in support of a very worthwhile cause.
All sponsorship monies received by Monmouth Rotary Club from persons taking part in the Monmouth Raft Race will be donated to St David’s Hospice Care (75%) and other charities supported by Monmouth Rotary Club (25%).
