Thirteen dragon boat teams from Visayas and Mindanao will converge at the Cagayan de Oro River to compete in the Kagayhaan Gold Cup Dragon Boat Competition set August 20, 2016.
The event which is being organized by JCI Kagayhaan Gold, Inc. in partnership with Liceo de Cagayan University and Safer River Life Saver Foundation Inc. has already drawn the following teams (as of August 2):
The teams will be competing in the following five categories: 200m Men, 200m Mixed, 200m Women, 2000m Open, and 2000m Mixed.
Although the race proper is set on August 20, there are other side events such as river cleanup and mangrove planting, among others. See schedule below.
The event aims to create an event that fosters friendship and peace through sports among young citizens. The event also aims to serve as a venue to advocate environmental concerns particularly the state of our waters and to become a communal convergence of people and appreciate sports and the potential of Cagayan River as a venue for recreation.
And of course, the event’s advocacy will not be complete without the lasting photographs of the race. Thus, it is also inviting all photography enthusiasts who want to SHOOT, WATCH & ENJOY. Just proceed to Liceo River Port, which is the best place to watch the race.
