The Head of the Charles Regatta (HOCR) is the world’s largest two-day rowing event. Started in 1965, it’s regarded as one of the most famous and renowned races in rowing, and something that rowers, Bostonians and thousands of visitors look forward to celebrating each and every October. The HOCR is an especially meaningful event for our team here at Hydrow -- not only is it held on our home river, but it also represents so much of what our organization stands for: teamwork, dedication and camaraderie. Here’s the scoop on all-things Hydrow at HOCR 55. Stop by the Hydrow Booth Hydrow will be exhibiting on both Saturday and Sunday October 19 and 20 within the Rowing & Fitness Expo at the HOCR Hospitality Row, located near the Eliot Bridge (approximate street address is 990 Soldiers Field Road).
Try out Hydrow, chat with our team members and meet our Hydrow Athletes, who will be on site all weekend in between races (more on that later!) We’ve also scheduled a limited number of 1:1 on-Hydrow training sessions with our Hydrow Athletes, giving Hydrow users the opportunity to improve their form and technical performance on Hydrow.
