The world’s original intercollegiate athletic event, The Boat Race, is set to take place March 26.
In last year’s event, the Oxford men broke Cambridge’s five-year winning streak in the Men’s Boat Race, winning by 2 ¼ lengths in a time of 16:42. This equals the winning Oxford time in 2005, a time which hasn’t been matched since.
Cambridge retained their title as winners of the 2022 Women’s Boat Race for the fifth consecutive year, 2 ½ lengths ahead of rivals Oxford.
Both Cambridge and Oxford broke the course record that was set in 2017. Cambridge clocked an 18:23.
The event is sponsored by Gemini.
