This year the Head Committee, in cooperation with the Skiffhead & Jeugd- en Tweehead will organise the Virtual Head of the River 2021.
This event is set to take place from the 20th of March until the 4th of April. Everyone is very welcome to participate in this virtual regatta – from beginners to masters to champions, from young to old, from the Netherlands to New-Zealand.
Participation is possible at two distances and in several sports:
· The Virtual Head (8 km): rowing, ergometer, cycling, running
· ½ Virtual Head (4 km): for rowing and ergometer
You can register in various age categories. Rowing is allowed in all Corona-proof boats and teams (e.g. C1, skiff, youth C4).
Keep an eye on our website, as the registration form will be available soon. Registration is possible until the end of the Virtual Head.
Timekeeping and results will be handled by Time-Team. The only thing you need is a device to record your race in a GPX-formatted file. For example, a mobile phone, smartwatch or sports watch. You will receive more technical information from Time-Team after registration.
The Virtual Winners will be sent a nice award and all participants receive an appropriate souvenir.
Keep an eye on the website www.headoftheriver.nl, because the registration form will be published here soon. You can register until the end of the Virtual Head.
For the participation in the Virtual Head we ask for a voluntary contribution (about 5 euros per participant) to cover the costs. Any extra will be donated to the Fonds Gehandicaptensport.
