The 2009 Egham Centennial Regatta will take place at Runnymede Pleasure Ground on Sunday, June 28 from 8.30am to 6.30pm.

This Regatta is the only one on the River Thames that has Skiffing, Rowing and Punting, all on the same programme.

It has a long history commencing in 1909, being interrupted by two World Wars.

Mayor of Runnymede Paul Tuley will be present prizes along with Olympic bronze medal winners.

There is a history of younger rowers competing at Egham and going on to become future athletes at the Olympics - which is now only a few years away.

The Junior Regatta is one of the largest ‘Day’ Regattas to be held on the Thames.

It is held on a beautiful stretch of the Thames.

The race course is upstream from Bellweir Lock to the finish at the Runnymede Pleasure Ground.

The towpath is free and all members of the public are welcome to attend on the day.
