More than 1,500 collegiate, youth, and masters rowers from 59 local and out-of-state programs including prominent teams from Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Canada will compete on the Cuyahoga River. Participants will come from 13 States.
Teams race a point-to-point 5,000-meter course starting from just north of ArcelorMittal Steel to Rivergate Park. Spectators can see the finish line from the patio of Cleveland Metroparks’ popular Merwin’s Wharf restaurant. A spectator village and staging area for the HOTC is at Rivergate Park, home of the Cleveland Rowing Foundation Boathouse, located at 1003 British Street, Cleveland. Rain or shine.
