Lent Bumps 2002

The Lent Bumps 2002 were a series of rowing races held at Cambridge University from Wednesday March 1, 2002 until Saturday March 4, 2002. The event was run as a bumps race and is the most recent in the series of Lent Bumps which have been held annually in late-February or early March since 1887. See Lent Bumps for the format of the races. In 2002, a total of 121 crews took part (69 men's crews and 52 women's crews), with around 1000 participants in total. Several thousand spectators came to watch, particularly on the Saturday.

The bumps were scheduled to run from Tuesday February 28. The racing was cancelled on the Tuesday due to extremely strong and gusty winds. Crews in the 1st divisions were unaffected by the cancellation, since the first scheduled race for the top divisions was on Wednesday.

Head of the River crews

Caius men bumped First and Third Trinity and Emmanuel to regain the headship they lost in 2000.

Emmanuel women bumped Trinity Hall and Jesus to take their 10th headship of the Lent Bumps since 1988.
