Boat Race 2019

In just a few weeks from now, on Sunday 07th April, it will be time for THE sporting highlight in the Oxford calendar: time to cheer on the Dark Blues in the 165th edition of the legendary Boat Race. For the 5th time since 2015, both men and women’s races are held on the same day on the Tideway, making for an even greater spectacle with more than 200,000 spectators on the Thames’ river banks. As always, 800 years of rivalry will be resolved in 20 excruciating minutes on the water.

Who will reign over the mystic river this year, light or dark blue? We invite you to jointly follow this spectacle together with our friends from the Cambridge Alumni Society.
