Head of the Eagle


The Head of the Eagle will be held on Saturday, October 6th in Eagle Creek Park (ECP) in Indianapolis.  The race course will begin in the south pool of Eagle Creek Reservoir, and finish in the north pool of the Reservoir.  

New Racing Format for all eights - includes a dual sprint race!!

  • The traditional head race (4500m) will be coupled with a 1000m dual race, based on your head race finish (Top 16 eights from Masters, Junior (varsity & novice) and Collegiate (varsity & novice) will automatically be entered into the sprint race).

Housing available for teams on a budget!!

  • IRC has partnered with Shortridge High School (3401 N. Meridian St.) to provide inexpensive housing Friday night for teams traveling to Indianapolis.  The high school is less than 10 miles from Eagle Creek Park.  
  • There is a fee of $10/rower and coach.  Athletes must provide their own sleeping bags, blankets, pillows and mats/padding.  There is easy access to bathrooms and shower facilities.
  • If you and your team are interested, you must reserve a spot by emailing jen@indyrowing.org by Oct. 15th.
