The RowUK Leeds Regatta

The rowing will be fast and furious, with spray flying and coxes bellowing commands as the crews sprint through a tunnel of noise coming from the crowds lining the banks. We expect winning margins to be measured in inches rather than feet so there will be photo finishes for the closest contests.

At RowUK, we want to bring a new flavour to the sport. Throughout the day spectators can watch the racing, grab some street food and wander in and out of local bars and cafes. We will have a marketplace, activities for families, talent ID testing, sports massages and plenty more...

As soon as the medals are around the necks and the cash is handed out, it’s time for the after-parties. Stick around and make the most of it.

This is an elite event. If you wish to be considered, register your interest now.
