16th James River Sprints

  • Hosted By: James River Rowers
  • Cancelled

Welcome to the 16th annual James River Sprints Regatta

NOTE: This event is regretfully CANCELED for the 2021 season. We're very optimistic about the 16th Head of the James this Fall. Have a great season, any way you can!!

We invite you to join scholastic teams and independent junior clubs from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region to compete on the majestic James River sprint race course on Saturday, April 10th, 2021. Our gorgeous James River in Richmond was recently named as one of the world's 'Top 10 Riverways to Row Down Before You Die'.

The best part - paved parking and spectator admission are both absolutely FREE to keep your total event costs low!

The James River Sprints Regatta is located at Robious Landing Park, 3800 James River Road, Midlothian, Virginia in northern Chesterfield County on the south bank of the James River. The incredible 101-acre park is adjacent to James River High School, and only 10 miles from downtown Richmond, Virginia. The site includes easy parking for team trailers, lots of shade trees for team tents, picnic shelters, permanent modern restrooms, a children's playground, and nearly 3 miles of nature trails in addition to close access to the James River. We'll have Starbucks coffee, fresh donuts and real Chick-fil-a sandwiches onsite, plus other snacks, drinks and goodies . Another popular feature: our park does allow cooking with gas grills!!

Also, don't forget to save the date for our Fall head race: 16th Head of the James is Saturday, October 9th, 2021!

Please email us for any questions or information, and we'll see you there!
