The Women’s Eights Head of the River Race
The Women’s Eights Head of the River Race – founded in the 1930s with 5 crews participating – has now become the largest women’s rowing race in the world with around 2,880 women racing and 320 crews taking part. It is the only race in the UK where novices can compete in the same race as Olympic champions and as such attracts a wide range of rowers from clubs and universities.
The 2018 race is on 10 March at 9:45am.
The 2017 results are available here.
Over 100 volunteers donate their time on race day and the Committee are grateful to each and every one.
Our aim is to organise the largest and most iconic women’s distance rowing race in the world. Perhaps you would like to join us? We are having a reshuffle of roles within the organising committee and are looking for someone new to join us as Event Secretary. A full description of the post is available here. Any questions, please email the current Event Secretary, Lesley Baguley.
