About the Head of the Colorado

The Head of the Colorado (PumpkinHead Regatta) is held annually on the last Saturday of October. ARC has been hosting this regatta since the mid-1980's. 2011 marks the 27th annual PumpkinHead Regatta.

This 5,000 meter head race on Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Texas offers events for the following: junior, collegiate, open, adaptive and masters rowers; single kayaks, and Stand Up Paddle boards.

The 2011 Course will row through six of the seven bridges of Lady Bird Lake. It starts at the Barton Springs inlet, just east of the Texas Rowing Center and travels through the bridges eastwards. The turns are all gradual and there are lots of great spectator locations on the bridges, near the start at Auditorium Shores, and near the finish at Festival Beach Park.
