History

First raced in 1829 (men) and 1927 (women)  respectively, The Cancer Research UK Boat Races are amongst the oldest sporting events in the world.  March 2016 will see the running of the 162nd Boat Race and 71st Women’s Boat Race, both now taking place on the Championship Course.

Watched by thousands along the banks of the Tideway, between Putney and Mortlake in London, and by millions more on TV around the world, The Cancer Research UK Boat Races are a unique sporting event. With four very strong squads of athletes, expect to see more thrilling contests once again this year.

Foundations of The Boat Race

The race came about because two friends from Harrow School, Charles Wordsworth (nephew of the poet William Wordsworth), of Christ Church College, Oxford, and Charles Merrivale of St. John’s, Cambridge, met during the vacation in Cambridge, where Wordsworth’s father was master of Trinity.

Wordsworth went rowing on the Cam, and the two school fellows decided to set up a challenge. On February 10 1829 a meeting of CUBC requested Mr Snow of St John’s to write immediately to Mr Staniforth of Christ Church stating ‘that the University of Cambridge hereby challenge the University of Oxford to row a match at or near London, each in an eight-oared boat during the ensuing Easter vacation.’

Staniforth and Snow had been schoolfellows and boating comrades at Eton.
