The Cleveland Rowing Foundation hosted the inaugural USRowing Masters National Head Race on the Head of the Cuyahoga course. The race took place on Sunday after the Head of the Cuyahoga was run on Saturday. The intent of this race is that it represents the long distance national championship and is rotated to different venues each year. The inaugural event was very well organized though lightly attended in the first year.
