Hampton Roads Rowing Club hosts several annual events throughout the year. Beginning in February, we have our indoor rowing competition, the Erg Pull, where rowers of any age from all over the region compete against each other and the clock on the latest Concept II rowing machines.
National Learn to row day, in early June is an opportunity for members of the community to show up at the club and get a taste of the sport for free. For a more in depth look at the sport, we hold a series of learn to row courses throughout the year aimed at teaching complete novice the basics of rowing so they can competently take to the river by themselves or join the crew.
The rowing season ends with the Head of the Lafayette, a hilarious Halloween costume race against the clock. Prizes at this event are not only for the fastest crew, but also for the best dressed! Check out our photos for some of the crazy costumes we have seen in the past!
