Watch The Great River Race From Chiswick Pier
As it goes upstream from Docklands to Ham
The 2014 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.

The race begins at Docklands at 12.40 and the first boats should be passing Chiswick Pier by 14.45 with the winner arriving at Ham at around 15.40. Chiswick Pier is a wonderful vantage point for spectators so come along and whilst watching the race enjoy the BBQ, Fullers’ bar, and refreshments.
