The Lent Bumps 2020 was a series of rowing races at Cambridge University from Tuesday 25 February 2020 to Saturday 29 February 2020. The event was run as a bumps race and was the 127th set of races in the series of Lent Bumps which have been held annually in late February or early March since 1887.
The races were the last set of Bumps before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of all Lent and May Bumps events in Cambridge until the Lent Bumps 2022 two years later.
Head of the River crewsEdit
Lady Margaret M1 bumped Caius on First Post Corner on day 1, reclaiming the headship that Caius M1 had won the previous year.
Starting 4th on the river, Downing W1 bumped Emmanuel W1 and Newnham W1 on the first and second days respectively, before rowing over on the third day and bumping Jesus W1 (who had taken headship from Newnham on the first day) on the fourth day to claim the headship that Newnham had held since the previous year.
Highest 2nd VIIIsEdit
Lady Margaret II rowed over four times, as did Churchill ahead of them and Girton and Selwyn behind them, remaining the highest men's second VIII at 2nd place in the second division.
After rowing over on day 1, Emmanuel II were bumped by Robinson on the second day, but bumped them back on the third day before bumping Jesus II on the fourth day, becoming the highest placed second women's VIII on the river and finishing at 8th position in the second division.
