Head of the Mississippi

  • Hosted By: Minneapolis Rowing Club
  • USRowing Sanctioned Regatta

The Minneapolis Rowing Club will host the 43nd edition of the Head of the Mississippi (HOTM) Regatta on Saturday, October 7, 2023. A Fall classic, the HOTM has attracted crews and rowers representing clubs from around the Midwest and Canada. It is a head race sanctioned by USRowing where the rowers or crews race against the clock, starting from the Lake Street Bridge to the finish line just beyond the Washington Ave. Bridge. The race is about three miles or 4,820 meters to be exact. Rower or crew with the fastest time for the event they entered deemed the winner. There are 43 events for rowers and crew at the High School (Junior) level, Collegiate level, Post-Collegiate (Open) level, and Master level (i.e., for crews and rowers 27 and older). Come as a participant or spectator!
