One of the largest regattas in the country, the Head of the Ohio (HOTO) attracts rowers of all ages and abilities including Juniors, Masters, Adaptive, and Collegiate rowers. More than just a rowing race, the Head of the Ohio highlights all aspects of recreation along Pittsburgh’s riverfront – both on and off the water. HOTO draws crews, family, and friends from from across the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and southern Canada and features racing, outdoor activities, and entertainment for all ages.
The race begins upstream from downtown Pittsburgh at Washington's Landing and ends 3.2 miles downstream at Point State Park. HOTO celebrates the beauty and energy of Pittsburgh’s rivers.
HOTO Course Tour
All boats launch and return to the Lambert Boathouse on Washington's Landing or Millvale Training Center in Millvale Riverfront Park. The race runs downstream on the south side of Allegheny River, starting near the upper end of Washington's Landing, ending just upstream of the Ft Duquesne bridge near the fountain at Point State Park.
