The 2011 TRR Charity
No regatta is complete without
Puppies and Kittens!
The TRR will be making a charitable donation to the to the Lowell Humane Society from regatta proceeds. Please join us and consider making a financial contribution to the shelter today at the Vendor Area of the TRR. Learn more by visiting their website at www.lowellhumanesociety.org. Meow!
Today is 02-Jun-2023.
Our thanks to all the competitors, coaches, alumni, vendors, volunteers, and families & friends that made the TRR a success. The rain held off - and given the rash of cancelled regattas this weekend elsewhere in the region, we were thrilled to have overcast skies, good temperatures and very decent water level in the river.
We look forward to seeing you again next year - mark your calendar for TRR 2012 on Sunday September 30th, 2012. Until that day, we will again be looking at further ways to improve the event - so please do send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
Jay Feenan, Carl Popolo, Peg Landry and the Textile River Regatta Committee
More about the TRR
The 2009 TRR as seen from above. >> More pictures.
The Textile River Regatta is an extremely popular 6k head race held on the Merrimack River in the fall. The event is organized by the Merrimack River Rowing Association (MRRA) in coordination with the UMass-Lowell and Lowell High School Rowing programs.
A full range of sculling and sweeps events are included, with competition provided by large entries from many local and regional clubs and colleges. The event occurs a few weeks prior to the Head of the Charles and hence provides athletes with ideal competitive training on a great course with a convenient location.
