Head of the River Race 25 February 2023

The University Boat Club invites The Friends of the University to join them from 2 to 4 pm to watch the afternoon division of the RU Head of the River, and enjoy tea and cake provided by the student rowers.

The event is hosted at Reading Canoe Club, The Warren, Reading RG4 7TH (parking available), which has fantastic views of the final stages of the Head of the River, and provides the comfort of being in the warm and dry.

There is no need to book; just turn up to cheer on the crews and enjoy the afternoon speaking to some current rowers, and meeting fellow RUBC supporters.

On race day you may also enjoy a stroll along Thames Side Promenade (on the Berkshire river bank) and join the crowds in feeling close to the action; you could do this in the morning as racing starts from 10:30am.

If you have any questions please email the Director of Rowing, Will Rand at, tel 0118 378 8799.
