Getting On Race

The Getting-On Race took place on Friday 19th February.


Information about watching the bumps is available here. Spectators are reminded that only those with a valid bank pass are permitted to cycle with crews on the towpath, and that running with boats is dangerous and not permitted. Bank parties are limited to 4 per crew (including the boatman and any VIPs). Bumps programmes are available to purchase  from the CUCBC Control Desk at Chesterton, and the Plough pub and restaurant at Fen Ditton, or from King's College and certain other College Porters' Lodges, during Bumps. The programmes detail the course, race times, crew lists, and start order at the beginning of the week, and give an historical introduction to the course and the races.  Daily start orders are available on this website (see the previous day's results), and printed copies may be available on request at the Control Desk and at the Plough.
