The Head of the River Race: 29th March at 12h00
Now into its 89th year, the Head of the River Race is one of London's oldest sporting traditions. Every spring, 400 crews from around the globe take to the waters of London's famous river Thames to compete in this historic boating event.
The race was started in 1926 and today sees hundreds of boats, each manned by eight men, row the length of the 4.25 mile (6.8km) championship course from Mortlake to Putney. It is customary for the previous year's winner to start first. They are followed at 10-second intervals by other crews in finishing order, and finally, the new entries start in alphabetical order.
We recommend heading to Chiswick Bridge to see the crew off, cheering them on from Barnes Bridge as they gather pace, or watching them approach from Hammersmith Bridge. All of these locations can become very busy, so get there at least 45 minutes before the race begins in order to secure a good spot!
