Upcoming Events

Walk the Oxford/Cambridge Boat Race Course

We are sorry but registration for this event is now closed.

Please contact us if you would like to know if spaces are still available.

Description:

This is the 3rd year that we will be hosting at this event and it is a fantastic day out!

The Oxford/Cambridge Boat Race is steeped in tradition, taking place annually since 1829, as well as fierce rivalry between the 2 universities. Each year’s race attracts a crowd of around 250 000 people, and a BBC audience of over 6 million!

The atmosphere is one of fun and relaxation as the event swarms with people, all of whom are out to have a great time soaking up the sun, enjoying the array of foods and drinks available, socializing and OF COURSE – people watching!

Join me as we walk 1/2 of the 4 mile course, along the banks of the River Thames, starting at Putney Bridge and finishing in Barnes. (If you like, you may keep going to all the way to Chiswick Bridge.)
