A STAR-studded crew will compete for Oxford against Cambridge in the MCH.London virtual Boat Race today.

Triple Olympic champion Pete Reed and multiple Paralympic gold-medallist Grace Clough are among those taking part from their homes in the charity event at 3pm.

Rowers will race on ergometers, with each member of the eight-strong crews taking turns to complete 500m stints until the 6.8km distance has been reached.

The event will raise money for Power2Inspire, a charity aiming to boost inclusion through sport, which will broadcast the race online.

The 2020 Boat Race was scheduled for 29 March but was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
