Women’s Eights Head of the River Race on Saturday 10 March (start approx 9:45am) and Head of the River Race (Mens) on Sunday 11 March (start approx 10:45am).

The races see hundreds of national and international crews of eight rowers take to the waters to compete in this historic event. Rowed over the 4.25 mile (6.8km) Thames Championship Course, the race begins at Mortlake and ends at Putney taking around two hours from the time the first crew sets off to the time the last crew crosses the finish line. Crews start one after the other, at 10-second intervals. The winner is the crew, which completes the race in the fastest time. See the crews off from Chiswick Bridge, cheer them on from Barnes Bridge as they gather pace, or watch them approach from the Hammersmith Bridge. You can also try to find a good spot on the river banks or a seat in a cosy pub along the course. Take a look at the map of the racecourse.
