Welcome to Runcorn Rowing Club

Runcorn Rowing Club was established in 1894 on land purchased from the Marquis of Cholmondeley and offers the best stretch of water in the North West. Situated on the River Weaver in Clifton, Runcorn, the club is fortunate to have 10km of rowable river between Weston Marsh Lock and Dutton Locks.

The Club members range from juniors, students and professionals, right the way through to the retired and beyond. Continually developing, the club welcomes all levels of rowers regardless of ability. We offer a structured coaching programme for novices and beginners of all ages and frequently run learn to row courses.


Runcorn Spring Eights Head

Is on Saturday the 3rd of March 2018.

This year the Tideway Head of the River has moved 2 weeks earlier. So the Runcorn Eights Head is on the Saturday before. We are ideal preparation for the Tideway on the 10th, the Womens Head on the 11th and the Schools Head on the 12th.

This year in addition to the trophy for the highest placed University we are offering 2 trophies in honour of Ian Fisher. These are for the fastest open Schools eight and the fastest women's school eight.
