Upper Arlington Crew hosts an annual regatta at Griggs Reservoir Park that brings in 1000+ athletes and spectators from the midwest. In addition to some great racing on the river, visitors can enjoy the beauty of the park with music, food trucks and vendors.
This regatta was also created with an emphasis on the true spirit of competition. Upper Arlington Crew hosts this regatta each year, in part, as a fund-raising event to help provide scholarship money to UA Crew athletes via Blake's own UA Rowing Foundation. Through the gracious contributions of corporations, individuals, and numerous volunteers, the Blake Haxton Fall Regatta has been a tremendous success and will continue to grow each year.
