Each year in October the YMCA Rowing Crew plays host to the annual Head of the Rock Regatta. The race begins at Martin Park and ends 5,000 meters or 3.2 miles later at the YMCA Log Lodge. The Regatta is a sanctioned event of the United States Rowing Association. The event has grown over three decades. Each year over 50 teams with 2,000 rowers and 600 boats take to the water. Division I, II, and III colleges compete as well as local YMCA Rowing Crew members. More than 5,000 spectators cheer them on.
