The Blake Haxton Fall Regatta
Saturday from 8:30 AM - 7:00 PM EDT
Upper Arlington Crew is proud to bring the 12th annual Blake Haxton Fall Regatta to Griggs Reservoir on the Scioto River in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, October 29th, 2022. This Regatta features some of the fastest youth high school and club crews in the rowing community around Ohio and the Midwest. It is anticipated that more than 3000 athletes, spectators, and volunteers will be in attendance, and we welcome all to come down to the river to watch some spectacular racing. Food trucks and vendors will also be present.
The Blake Haxton Fall Regatta is named in honor of Blake Haxton, gifted athlete and former UA Crew Captain who suffered a devastating illness, necrotizing fasciitis, in 2009 and lost both of his legs. Survival was uncertain, but through a combination of faith, determination and the support of his family, friends and community, Blake survived. Today Blake continues to be part of the UA Crew community and has founded a scholarship program, the UA Rowing Foundation.
