The Hudson River and Mid-Hudson Rowing Associations invite you to compete in a 5,000m head-style race along the historic 1895 to 1951 Intercollegiate Rowing Association course while experiencing the natural splendor of the Hudson River during it's calmest season of the year!  Shadowing the route of the old Junior Varsity (3-Mile) course, crews will race downstream from the Culinary Institute of America's main campus in Hyde Park to the Mid-Hudson Bridge in Poughkeepsie, passing under Walkway Over the Hudson State Park and rowing by several other Pougheekpsie Waterfront landmarks.  Spectating opportunities are available along nearly the entire length of the course at Quiet Cove Riverfront Park (1,300m), Longview Park at Marist College (2,700m), the Marist and historic Cornell Boathouse site (2,900m) the Vassar College/HRRA Community Boathouse site (3,300m), Walkway Over the Hudson (4,100m), and Victor C. Wayras Park (4,500m).  Don't miss your chance to experience the beauty of the Hudson Valley while being the first crews in nearly a decade to compete on the same course of "Boys in the Boat" fame!  Please feel free to contact the Regatta Director at hrracoach@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.
