The Boat Race
The Boat Race, the Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race, the Oxbridge Boat Race, the Varsity Boat Race…whatever you like to call it, its position in the British Sporting and Social Calendar remains unique. The ‘Corinthian Spirit’, lost in so many other sports, is personified in the most famous river race of them all, making it a truly British institution.
Head Of The River Race
Takes place every year two weeks before the Boat Race in March. Hundred's of crews from London rowing clubs, including the London Rowing Club, row the Boat Race course...backwards (Mortlake to Putney) and is a marvelous sight to see all these crews on the water.
The BNY Mellon Boat Race - Oxford vs. Cambridge
Possibly...definitely, the most famous rowing race in the world takes place between the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge on the tideway course between Putney and Mortlake. A 4 and a quarter mile course that is fiercely fought over every year in March/April and has been raced since 1829, making it one of sports longest running rivalries
