This is a 3km head race on the beautiful Rock River in Jefferson County, Wisconsin. The Rock River Landing park just downstream from the finish line serves as the main base of operations. The centerline buoyed course includes passage under 3 bridges and a very scenic / wild stretch of the river. The startline is about 400m upstream (north) of the Glacial Drumlin Bike / Pedestrian bridge.

The unique event lineup is designed to allow multiple races throughout the day. Most events are run in the Morning, Mid-Day and Afternoon sessions allowing athletes and coaches the ability to configure the best event order and lineups based on their autumn goals. Combined with the simple, All Day Price of $28 per rower (coxswain free) to enter All events!

Club cap of $1,400 for 50 athletes all entered at once. If your club will be meeting the cap please contact the race director via email.
