Rowers from across the country will be competing in the Boston Rowing Marathon tomorrow.

The event, which starts at Lincoln and finishes at host club Boston Rowing Club’s Carlton Road Boathouse, is unique because of its 31-mile distance along the Witham.

Classes include open, women’s, masters, junior, mixed and adaptive.

The open record stands at 2 hours 59.45 mins and was set by the University of London in 1991.

Racing will begin at approximately 8.30am.
