Brown Cup Rowing Event: UBC versus UVic

Calling all alumni — it’s prime time to show off your alma mater pride! Why? Because UBC Thunderbirds rowing teams are once again taking on the UVic Vikes at the 2023 Brown Cup! We’re congregating to cheer on both men’s and women’s teams, as the two universities go up against each other in this historic rivalry. At the waterfront location of Tug Eatery and Bar in Victoria, attendees can watch the races streamed live on screen and catch the final nail-biting moments outside near the finish line. Join your alumni network to support UBC as we go for glory!  

Presented in partnership with UBC Athletics and Recreation.
