The safety and wellbeing of the public, competitors, staff & contractors is of upmost importance to the Colours Boat Races.
We are continually monitoring the coronavirus (Covid-19) situation along with HSE advice and recommendations, and have completed a risk assessment that details the limited risk involved given the low and dispersed crowd numbers, limited travel and limited contact between competitors.
Currently the event is proceeding as planned with additional control measures detailed below. However action is required from all participants to minimise the spread of infection. We are committed to following HSE advice and ask that you read the guidelines below carefully.
Given the fluid nature of the situation these guidelines may be amended. Any updates will be available here or on our social media channels.
