Great River Race 2013
Enjoy the spectacle from Chiswick Pier on 7th September
The 2013 Great River Race will again 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.

Chiswick Pier is a wonderful vantage point for spectators so come along and whilst watching the race enjoy the BBQ, Fullers' bar, and refreshments.
