Head of the Schuylkill Regatta

HOSR: October 28-29, 2017
Head of Schuylkill

Philadelphia City Rowing will participate in the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta. Competitors in the 2017 Head of the Schuylkill Regatta® continue a tradition of exceptional fall racing that began more than four decades ago. While the expansive scope of the two-day Regatta today bears little resemblance to its 1970 roots, the spirit of the Regatta endures: a fall race showcasing high-caliber crews as well as those new to the sport. An estimated 180 competitors participated in the first race. Last year, more than 8,900 athletes crossed the finish line of the 2.5-mile scenic course.
