It may be over-shadowed by its rowing equivalent but the 5th annual Oxford and Cambridge Goat Race also takes place today.
The race between the two goats, named after the famous universities, will happen at Spitalfields City Farm in East London.
Here's a glimpse of what happened last year:
Royal Marines will be stationed in inflatable boats along the length of the Boat Race course on Sunday to ensure the event is not disrupted by another protester, organisers said today.
Last year's race had to be halted when Trenton Oldfield swam into the path of the two crews and narrowly avoided being struck by an Oxford oar.

Oldfield, who claimed to be protesting against elitism, was released from prison in December having served seven weeks of a six-month sentence after being found guilty of causing a public nuisance.
