River Clyde Boat Race – Saturday 24th May


Members of Glasgow and Edinburgh’s University boat clubs will battle it out in an annual race on the River Clyde on Saturday, May 24. Running since 1877, the event is the third oldest boat race in the world behind the famous Oxbridge contest and Harvard-Yale Regatta in America. The 2.6km race route runs from Broomielaw Quay to the Riverside Museum. Despite being nearly 140 years old, rivalry around the race has not subsided and each year sees two of the country’s leading sporting university’s vying to take home the prize.  There will be seven races in total at the free-to-watch event.
