GREAT RIVER RACE

The Great River Race is one of the most spectacular events you'll see in London, an unmissable event for rowers and an unforgettable team experience. 

Known as the 'River Marathon', it's a 21 mile race, starting in London Docklands rowing upriver and ending up in Ham, Surrey. 

Founded in 1988 with 72 boats, the River Race has gone from strength to strength with over 300 entrants today. 


You'll see boats of just about every class, from dragon boats to pirate ships, dressed up and there for fun and serious competitors out to win. 

It is a truly spectacular event, and a unique way to see the sights of London.
