Watch The Great River Race From Chiswick Pier
Around 300 crews from all over the globe take part on gruelling 21 mile course
For the second year this annual event will be run upstream from London Docklands to Ham.
The gruelling 21 mile course attracts both the true racer and the leisure rower. Around 300 crews from all over the globe take part – all traditional style with a minimum of 4 oars or paddles and carrying a cox and passenger.
Watch the Great River Race from Chiswick Pier on Saturday 25 September.
The race begins at Docklands at 12.15 and the first boats should be passing Chiswick Pier by 2.20 with the winner arriving at Ham at around 3.20.
Chiswick Pier is a wonderful vantage point from which to watch the race and this year you will also be able to watch the whole race using GPS tracking where each boat is represented by a dot on a google map of the Thames.
There will be a BBQ, Fullers’ bar, and refreshments to add to the enjoyment of the day.
