Boat Race 2016 – Practice run for Oxford, Cambridge and Claire Balding

Check out the preparations Oxford and Cambridge Universities, as well as TV presenter Claire Balding, made for the Boat Race 2016 with our exclusive video.

We recorded this yesterday in London’s Putney by the River Thames where the rowers from the annual event start the race. As well as the various teams from the two universities we were also lucky to see TV presenter Claire Balding at work. She was recording part of the introduction to the BBC television programme up high on a crane platform.

The teams rowers are full time students at the Universities and just part time athletes.
