The Oxford X Cambridge Boat Race Returns to London for 2022

Watch by the River Thames as the Famous Boat Cace returns to its Celebrated Championship Course on April 3rd.

The Oxford Cambridge annual Boat Race is Back! Join over 250,000 spectators and broadcast networks (including BBC Sports), as well as millions of online viewers by the River Thames for this spectacular event.

Due to the challenge of planning a high-profile sporting event around COVID-19 related restrictions at the time, last year’s race location was moved and took place behind closed doors, at Ely, Cambridgeshire. However, the 76th Women’s and the 167th Men’s Boat Races are excited to return to the famous Championship Course for 2022 – which stretches over 4.25 miles of the tidal Thames in West London between Putney and Mortlake.

When do the Races Start?

The Women’s Boat Race will start at 2:23 pm and the Men’s Boat Race will begin at 3.23 pm.

The world-famous sporting event between the UK’s two historic universities – Oxford and Cambridge – spans 185 years of rivalry and the Race has become synonymous with British tradition and excellence. The Race has established itself as the epitome of amateur sport, raced by scholar athletes who combine academic rigour with elite physical prowess. You won’t want to miss this historical occasion.
