Head of the Dog Details and Maps

Hosted annually in September by Portland Boat Club on the beautiful Multnomah Channel, the Head of the Dog is a three mile head race, a costume competition, and a fun picnic — all rolled into one. We run two separate start waves, one for singles only, and a second for doubles, quads, and fours to minimize wait time on the water. Boat launch from Portland Boat Club and row to the start. Spectators have premium viewing of the finish line from the boathouse. Costumes are an annual tradition for this event although optional they are highly encouraged! Food and awards round out the festivities after the race.
