Head of the Colorado (PumpkinHead)

  • Hosted By: Austin Rowing Club
  • 2017 Registered Regatta


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. 2017 marks the 33rd Annual PumpkinHead Regatta.

This 4,000 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 2017 Course will row through three of the seven bridges on Lady Bird Lake. It starts at the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue and travels through the bridges eastward. The turns are all gradual and there are lots of great spectator locations on the bridges, near the start, at Festival Beach Park, and on the boardwalk.




Join us throughout the day at the venue as we raise awareness and funds for breast cancer support right here in Austin, Texas! All monies raised throughout the day are donated on behalf of the Austin Rowing Club to the local non-profit, Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas. (BCRC).
