Alumni Group Boat Race events 2016

Oxford will be looking to continue its winning streak on the water against historic rivals Cambridge in this year's 162nd Cancer Research UK Boat Race.

Last year all three Oxford rowing crews won their races against Cambridge on a momentous afternoon when the women, for the first time, raced over the same gruelling course as the men. The Dark Blues won The Newton Women’s Boat Race by six-and-a-half lengths, The BNY Mellon Boat Race by six lengths, and The Isis Goldie Race (for the men’s reserve boats) by three lengths.

If Oxford secure victory in 2016, they will edge tantalisingly closer to Cambridge's 81 wins - Oxford currently stands at 79.

This year's races takes place on Sunday 2 April and, as last year, many of our alumni groups around the world are holding events to mark the occasion. To find out what is happening where you are, please see below:
