2017 Corporate Challenge

Saturday, October 28 (approximately 4:30pm)

The Corporate Challenge at the 47th Head of the Schuylkill Regatta (HOSR) offers a unique and memorable opportunity for your employees to compete in and be part of the excitement of Philadelphia’s largest and most inclusive regatta. The Corporate Challenge offers unparalleled team building and networking for your employees as well as a great branding opportunity for your firm as thousands of spectators and competitors watch the action along Kelly Drive.

The Head of the Schuylkill is a 2.5-mile head race. Each company shall enter a team of nine employees comprised of eight rowers and one coxswain. Crews are responsible for arranging all equipment (ie. shells and oars) and launching their shells from designated docks. Crews must adhere to HOSR Rules.

Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded to the first, second and third-place champions. In addition, all competitors will receive a t-shirt for competing and are invited to the post-race celebration Saturday evening.

Your firm will also be prominently listed on the HOSR website and social media feeds, seen by tens of thousands of high school, collegiate, masters, and elite athletes, their families, and the organizations that partner with the HOSR.

Entry fees are $1000 per boat and all proceeds benefit the Philadelphia Gold Challenge Cup Foundation, a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania non-profit corporation Federally exempt from income tax under IRC Section 501(c)3. A portion of your entry fee is tax deductible.

Register and submit fees on RegattaCentral by October 6, 2017. The Corporate Challenge is listed as Event 21D.

We look forward to having you join us at Philadelphia’s Fall Festival of Rowing!  If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Wesson at executivedirector@hosr.org.
