This year the Head of the River Amstel will be held as a virtual event in which participants can test their strength on their own waters, while practicing social distancing and staying safe from the corona-virus.
Of course, we would have loved to welcome you to Amsterdam to row this iconic long-distance race on the beautiful Amstel River. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, this is not possible this year.
So instead, we are working hard to set up the Virtual Head of the River 2021, a multi-sport event in March where participants from all fields can compete against each-other on their own water. We aim to honour the competitive element of the Head as much as possible while keeping it accessible to all our participants. This way we can host this classic while remaining completely compliant with local Covid-19 measures.
Further information providing the details on the Virtual Head of the River 2021 will be shared on our website and social media as soon as possible.
Stay healthy and safe and we look forward to your participation!
