The Boat Race Action 2020
Time & Location
About the Event
The Boat Race is an annual contest between rowing crews from Oxford and Cambridge Universities that takes place close to Easter each year on the River Thames in south west London between Putney and Mortlake.
The first Men's Boat Race took place in 1829 in Henley on Thames following a challenge between old school friends. Since the second Race in 1836 the contest has taken place in London. The first Women's Boat Race took place in 1927 and moved to the Championship Course in 2015.
Barnes Sports Club is situated next to the river Thames, just a stone’s throw away from the action. The bar will open selling the usual good-value beer and wine and there will be a BBQ selling burgers. Please come and join us in watching the Race, both on TV and live, and enjoy a fun atmosphere. All welcome, including furry friends.
The Ladies’ race starts at 3.45pm and the Men’s at 4.45pm.
