As part of the Totally Thames Festival the Great River Race will be run upstream from London Docklands to Ham. The gruelling 21 mile course attracts over 330 crews from all over the globe. The race appeals to every level of competitor from dedicated athletes to those who enjoy fun, fancy dress and charity stunts. It’s a great day out for both competitors and spectators.

Come down to Chiswick Pier to watch the Great River Race on Saturday 16th September. The race begins at Docklands at approximately 11.15 on a “slowest first, fastest last” handicap basis. The first boats should be passing Chiswick Pier around 1.00 and continue to come through for at least an hour.

Chiswick Pier is a wonderful vantage point for spectators with excellent views of a long stretch of the river. The Pier House will be open from 12.00 where hot and cold refreshments, and wine and beer will be on sale. We will also have delicious Moroccan food from Argania.

Please do come and join us to watch this wonderful race.
