Head of the Colorado

Due to the aquatic plants and other environmental conditions we have cancelled Head of the Colorado for 2022.  Head of the Colorado will return on Sunday, October 29th, 2023.  Hope to see you there.

The Head of the Colorado will be held on October 29th, 2022.

ARC has been hosting this regatta since the mid-1980s. This 4,000 meter head race on Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Texas offers events for the following: Adaptive, Collegiate, Junior and Masters rowers.  A full list of events can be found on Regatta Central.

New for 2022:  We have adjusted the course map to end in the basin rather than back towards Festival Beach.  This does shorten the race by 1,000m.  Please see Course Map below for details.
