Getting On Race

The Getting-On Race, to qualify for the lowest divisions of the May Bumps 2022, will take place on Friday 10th June 2022. More information about the Getting-On Race will be available here closer to the time.


Information about watching the bumps is available here. Spectators are reminded that only Umpires and designated bank parties may cycle with crews. You should contact your boat club captains if you would like to be a designated bank party. Designated bank parties are limited to four cyclists per crew (including the boatman and any VIPs), and runners are not permitted for safety reasons.

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.
