Join us in celebrating 50 years of the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta

The 2020 Head of the Schuylkill Regatta is “virtually yours” (or anybody’s for that matter!) as you can compete from wherever you are, on your favorite rowing machine or body of water. Join us in celebrating our 50th anniversary by connecting with community and moving the words “we are all in this together” into action.

There will be separate events for the self-submittal of times on erg and water during October 18th-23rd, and live racing on October 24th.  


Race 4100-4300 meters (to be disclosed at start of race week) from your favorite place, any time during event week October 18th – 23rd. Competitors may row their piece on any rowing machine that counts distance and submit their time.  Individual and team events will be offered.


Race 4100-4300 meters (to be disclosed at start of race week) from your favorite body of water, any time during event week October 18th- October 23rd. Competitors may use an NK SpeedCoach GPS or any device that exports .fit file to record their meters and submit during the event week.

LIVE ERG (Synchronous)

Go head-to-head with rowers for 4150! The HOSR is partnering with HereNow to bring you LIVE racing. The event will be held on Saturday October 24th. You will experience a virtual race through a 3D rendering of the Schuylkill River. Competitors will start in a head race fashion chasing the boats ahead of them down the course. Competitors will connect their phone with a Concept2 Erg (with PM5 monitor) or an RP3 to race live against rowers from around the country and world.
