Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race

It is no secret that Cambridge and Oxford compete in education but they also have an annual boat race where they battle it out to come out on top.

This year’s boat race is taking place on 11 April 2015 at 14:15. The race is on the River Thames.

The first race started 12 March 1829 and has become a tradition as it comes into its 159th year. The race still follows its historical route and up to 250,000 viewers come to watch it.

Cambridge is in the lead 81-77 and won the 2012 race.

So come down and support Cambridge!
