Head of the Ohio is October 1!

The Head of the Ohio crew race, which is always held the first Saturday in October, takes place this Saturday, October 1. Races start at about 8:00 a.m. and will continue throughout the day. This is a great fall event, and really showcases the beauty of the sport and the conditioning of these athletes. Rowers of all classifications compete, from "Masters" who are well into late adulthood, to Juniors who are just in eighth grade. The event takes place on Washington's Landing, overlooking the Allegheny River, which is only a mile or so from the Priory. It's an easy walk or bike ride. You will need to park by the Heinz Loft apartments and take a shuttle, as Washington's Landing is an island with limited parking and ingress/ egress.

The event is sponsored and run by the Three Rivers Rowing Association.

If you're curious, stop by and check it out. It's a great day out!
