The Molesey Head Races are run over a 3250 metre course on the Thames from just below Sunbury Weir to Hampton Ferry.
The river is safe and wide and clear of weirs. In February however, the current may be strong. This may result in cancellation of the race or the removal of certain classes of entry.
The Junior Head races take place in the morning (two divisions at 10 and noon), with some crews boating from Hampton/LEH and some from Molesey Boat Club.
The Molesey Veteran Head race takes place in the afternoon, starting at 2.30.
Refreshments are available at Molesey Boat Club.
Special ‘Molesey Head Races’ medals will be awarded to all competitors who win events where three or more crews have raced.
