About the Head of the Colorado
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.
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.
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.
