The Boat Race
Which team are you rooting for? Cheer them on as they go head-to-head with the competition and race over 4 miles from Putney to Mortlake down the River Thames.
Every year since 1829, this legendary annual rowing race between Cambridge University Boat Club and the Oxford University Boat club has taken place. An adrenaline filled day for rowers and viewers alike and usually there couldn’t be a more exciting way to celebrate traditional British sport than to watch this sensational race from the side lines of the beautiful River Thames with some friends.
However, this year, The Boat Race will be a 'closed' event in 2021, without spectators. The Boat Race Company is working with local authorities to ensure a safe event for the local community, crews, and coaches, as well as the volunteers and contractors helping to stage the races.
We are encouraging the millions of Boat Race fans to get involved at home, enjoying the event on the BBC and respecting any restrictions that may be in place at the time.
