The Chicago Sprints features 1000m, side-by-side, Henley style racing. With two full days of racing, know that we try to squeeze in as many races as we can. However there are a finite number of races that can be run each day.  We love our participants and will work very hard to accommodate as many rowers/events as possible.

Since its inception in 1910, Lincoln Park Boat Club has hosted competitive rowing regattas at its Lincoln Park Lagoon site. Since1980, those competitions have centered on the Chicago Sprints Regatta. The Chicago Sprints is one of the largest competitive regattas in the region, drawing junior, collegiate and masters programs throughout the Midwest. The Chicago Sprints continues to be the largest sprint-season regatta in the Midwest, and among the top 5 largest non-collegiate sprint regattas in the Nation. In 2010 the Lincoln Park Boat Club's Chicago Sprints Regatta was host to more than 500 athletes, fielding 294 entries from 27 clubs throughout 10 states. In addition it is attended by hundreds of casual and dedicated spectators who line the 1000 meter course situated between Lake Shore Drive and the Lincoln Park Zoo.
