The Remenham Challenge Cup is a rowing event for women's eights at the annual Henley Royal Regatta on the River Thames at Henley-on-Thames in England. It is open to female crews from all eligible rowing clubs. Two or more clubs may combine to make an entry.[1]


In 1998, the first invitation event was held for women's eight, which in 1999 became an open event known as the Henley Prize. In 2002, the Remenham Club presented a trophy in memory of its late President, Ian Rogers M.B.E., and the event was subsequently renamed The Remenham Challenge.[1][2]
