MACRA Championships

  • Hosted By: University of Cincinnati Rowing Team

Mid-America Collegiate Rowing Association (MACRA) Championship

Southern Ohio again welcomes the MACRA Championships, to be hosted by the University of Cincinnati Men's and Women's Rowing team at Lake Harsha, a superb 2,000 meter course located 30 minutes east of Cincinnati in East Fork Lake State Park.

Many rowers and coaches will be familiar with this site from the 2015 and 2016 US Rowing Club Nationals and other US Rowing Youth/Junior regattas, and the Cincinnati Invitational Regatta.

The local organizing committee will be assisted by the Clermont County Convention and Visitors Bureau The CVB, with the support of the State of Ohio, has invested heavily in renewed infrastructure at Lake Harsha, including a new restroom facility, concession stand, 8 wakeless launches, launch and recovery docks, starting platform, wireless internet and other amenities. The rowing course will be installed by Tim Royalty, former Head Coach of UC Rowing and one of the premier course installers in the nation. Gregg Hartsuff, UM Head Coach, will continue to be involved in managing the progression system for the regatta.

Please note:

MACRA Membership is $45 per team.  All competing schools will be asked to pay this membership fee to offset fixed, upfront costs to host the Regatta. Thereafter, entry fees will be $12/athlete, with a fee cap of $840. See the Regatta info packet (link below) for details.
