PCR to race in the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta

PCR Rowers will all be racing in the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta on October 27th & 28th.  For many of our novice rowers, this will be their very first race.  The Head of the Schuylkill Regatta has brought thousands of athletes from the region and far beyond to Philadelphia for what is considered one of the best run, and most challenging head races, in the US. Its popularity caused regatta directors to expand the event to 2 full days. Over 6,500 athletes will compete this year and between 5, 000 – 8, 000 spectators will watch this 2.5-mile head race, the grand finale of fall regatta racing in Philadelphia.  Come cheer on our PCR athletes as they go up against some great competition on their own turf!
