Reading University HORR

Sadly the 2018 RU HoRR has been cancelled due to severe weather warning, and a sunken cruiser in the middle of the race course. We're all very dissapointed, but it became just to risky to run the event. The entry fee will be refunded in full.

Our next Head of the River will be on Saturday 9th March 2019, we hope you can join us.


We will once again be running the head race over a course of approximately 4.6km downstream course, starting near the former Roebuck public house in Tilehurst and finishing near Caversham Bridge in central Reading.  We look forward to having you racing with us.
