The Rutherford Head of the River Race (named after its founding body, Rutherford College) runs over a 4500-5000 metre course, usually rowed upstream from Scotswood to Newburn. It sees crews from all over the north of England and much of Scotland visiting to experience an often challenging winter race on a big river.
Rutherford Head is supported by the Reece Group.
Poster and BROE for the next event on 26 November 2016
The poster is now out and downloadable below. BROE will open as soon as possible, 25 or 26 October, and close on Friday 18 November (though may be suspended before that date if full).
Early entry advised
Early entry is advised, as we are normally over subscribed. We have a limit of 130 for each division. Please try to get all entries made in one go, as a few clubs got caught by the guillotine last time, with half in and half out. This applies especially to those trailering a long way.
Remember, as racing points are now being awarded for all racing (including heads), there may be spot checks on accuracy of crews (not just winners) as recorded on BROE or notified to the Event Secretary before racing.
Event Secretary: Phil Robinson on email@example.com or on 07443 621808.
