Mar 29th | Oxford x Cambridge Boat Race

CANCELLED - It was expected a 300,000-person crowd along the Thames on 29th March to watch the famous annual boat race between Oxford and Cambridge rowing teams. 

As a result of the current situation with COVID-19, The Boat Race on 29th March 2020 has been cancelled. 

The Boat Race is a side-by-side rowing competition between the University of Oxford (the Dark Blues) and the University of Cambridge (the Light Blues). First held in 1829, the race takes place on the 4.2-mile (6.8 km) Championship Course, between Putney and Mortlake on the River Thames in south-west London. The rivalry is a major point of honour between the two universities; it is followed throughout the United Kingdom and broadcast worldwide. 

Are you a Dark Blue or Light Blue supporter? Take your pick and get ready!
