Great River Race



Taking place during Totally Thames 2022, London’s River Marathon passes Vauxhall, Battersea and Nine Elms en route to the finish at Ham, Richmond.

A spectacular boat race up the River Thames, it attracts over 330 crews from all over the globe. The Great River Race appeals to every level of competitor – from dedicated athletes who like winning, to those who enjoy laughter, fancy dress and charity stunts – it’s a great fun day out for both competitors and spectators.

Starting at Millwall Dock Slipway, Docklands, at around 10.30am, the frontrunners in the race are estimated to pass the following vantage points from these times:

  • 11:45am at Lambeth Bridge
  • 11:55am at Battersea Bridge
