OXFORD/CAMBRIDGE BOAT RACE COURSE WALK

  • Mar 31, 2013 · 2:30 PM
  • PUTNEY BRIDGE STATION

It's become a bit of a family tradition.  It's our 4th year hosting this event and it is a fun day out!

Each year two rival university's compete in the OXFORD/CAMBRIDGE boat race. This event is absolutely legendary! There is a fantastic buzz- hard not to catch as the path and pubs will swarming with ten's of thousands of people. NOT TO MENTION THE EXTREMELY HOT BODS...

Needless to say this is a very good people watching event for both men and women!

I am keen to get fit this year... or at least burn off a pint or two! (that's what I said last year too!)

Join me in as we walk 2 miles of the 4 mile course starting at Putney Bridge and finishing in Barnes.  (you can keep going to Chiswick Bridge.)  We'll walk on the south side of the river, which is less crowded than the north.

Please turn right when you exit and wait along the wall

(We will wait for 15 MINUTES... then cross the river.  There is a chance you could catch up with us.  Cross the river and walk quickly to Hammersmith Bridge.  Text me and we'll meet you there (if we can)[masked]*064

WHAT TO WEAR:

As much as I would love to see your new Jimmy Choos, I would suggest you keep your stilettos at home and wear trainers or walking shoes.

FORECAST: Temp 12 degrees.  I would dress warm and wear boats in case the trail is muddy.

BAD WEATHER: If the weather is bad-like raining, we will hope on the 283 bus and go to Barnes. They have a big inside area and large screen to watch the race.

IF YOU LOSE THE GROUP: We will meet at tge Coach and Horses in Barnes (turn left at the bull pub/strada - if you get to the rail station, you've walked to far)

AFTER THE RACE:

Meet at the Coach and Horses in Barnes.

DON'T WANT TO DO THE WALK?: You can meet us at the Coach and Horses in Barnes

MEETUP COST:

£5, Free for Bon Vivant Members

INCLUDES: History of boat race presentation, guided walk, and a shot of posh Sloe Gin (it's fruity like berries) to keep us warm on the way.

plus meetup charges nearly £150 per year to have a group on the site, so some of this fee go towards that cost.  Please bring cash

      Hi Tara, it's better to meet us at the meeting spot. There are nearly 50 people joining us and I won't be able to text to try to find you. Plus we are stopping for a presentation before we cross. So you may miss us. Up to you. Kelly
