Where Rowing Adventures Begin

GRR Quiz – Part 1

Dear River Racers and All,

Why not while away a few hours, or minutes, taking part in the first  GRR Lockdown Quiz and maybe winning a prize? ?

Racers:  First  register your Race Entry on the website (but don’t pay yet) and send your answers with the Registration Number to  info@greatriverrace.co.uk. This is all we need for your entry. The person who accumulates the most correct answers will then have their 2020 Entry (up to crew of ten) marked as paid. If already paid, you will receive a refund; there is no cash alternative and entries are restricted to one per crew. 

Non Racers: Go ahead and enter the quiz for your chance to win two adult and one junior ticket for our passenger boat following the Race. Just type in your answers next to the questions and send it back to info@greatriverrace.co.uk.

Good luck to you all ????‍♀️??
