Marlow Rowing Club is an amateur rowing club, on the River Thames in England. It is situated on the southern bank of the Thames at Marlow, Buckinghamshire just beside Marlow Bridge and on the reach above Marlow Lock.
Marlow Rowing Club, founded in 1871, is one of the main rowing and sculling centres in England. Members of the Club have represented Great Britain in the Olympic Games and World Championships.
The club colour is cardinal, although the current club kit is closer in colour to maroon. All-in-ones are maroon with a white stripe down the side and the club crest on the front. Shirts are while with a maroon stripe on the arm and the word "Marlow" picked out in white lettering. Leggings are black with a maroon stripe down the side. The colour scheme is not dissimilar to that of Vesta Rowing Club or Oxford Brookes University.
The club rows from Marlow up to Temple Lock (approximately 2km), and from below Marlow Lock down to Cookham (approximately 5km). The former stretch is the home of Marlow Town Regatta, Marlow Spring Regatta and FirstRow Challenge, and the latter the setting for Marlow Long Distance Sculls and Marlow Fours and Pairs. The Marlow Regatta moved to Dorney Lake in 2001. Off the water the club also runs the "Rower's Revenge" Triathlon which consists of rowing machines, cycling and running and is held in October each year.
