The Boat Race of the North is a rowing event held annually between Newcastle University Boat Club and Durham University Boat Club on the River Tyne in Newcastle.
The event was started in 1997 on the 18th of May with Newcastle only winning its first Boat Race in 2009. In 2010 the event was a draw and from 2011 to 2014 no races were held. In 2015 the Boat Race of the North returned and the result was also a draw, however for the last two years Newcastle have won the title. There are usually 6 races held between the two Universities; Men's and Women's First and Second Eights and Men's and Women's Novice Eights. The Race is held over a 1500 meter course from the Redheugh Bridge to the Millennium Bridge providing short and exciting racing under the world famous bridges of Newcastle. The race has been sponsored by Northumbrian Water and the NE1 Business development company in the past and is now sponsored by Siemens.
This year the Siemens Boat Race of the North is being held on the 17th of March, starting at 14:30, and Newcastle are looking to defend their title as Champions of the North. Head to our Event page on Facebook to make sure you don't miss any updates.
