Fuller's Head of the River Fours
This event was first run in 1955, when 34 crews rowed over a 3 mile course from Chiswick Steps to Putney Pier. Such has been the growth in the event's popularity it is now rowed over the full four and a quarter mile Championship Course from Mortlake to Putney, which is the Oxford and Cambridge boat race course in reverse.
Entries are limited to a maximum of 550, which is the largest number of entries for any one race in the United Kingdom, but it is always oversubscribed.
