The Cancer Research UK Boat Races
First raced in 1829 and 1927 respectively, The Cancer Research UK Boat Races are amongst the oldest sporting events in the world. April 2017 will see the running of the 163rd Boat Race and 72nd 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.
