THE RACE _______________________________________________________

HoF is a 2 mile (3.2 km) headrace on the most challenging river in Sweden to steer a boat at full speed on – Fyrisån in Uppsala. The fastest coxed crew wins Johanna Anderssons Trophy and this year we have restricted entries to ONLY 8+ for experienced rowers and 4+ for beginners. For the 8+ we only allow mixed crews (at least 1 rower from the opposite sex) and we define beginners as rowers who took up the sport in October 2018 or later (less than 1 year’s experience). The 4+ category is also mixed and includes both inriggers and gig-boats.

Sign up no later than 23:00 Sunday 13th October 2019 using our on-line form https://forms.gle/cbSHZZs1jCP3SzmW8  

The entry fee is 125 SEK/rower or cox and is paid to UARS in one payment per club. This is most conveniently done over SWISH to our account: 123 567 35 95 or via bank transfer to UARS Bankgiro: 300-7440. Mark your payment with “HoF2019”, club name, and number of rowers & coxes. UARS rowers may settle the entry fee individually. Please settle this no later than race day.

New for this year is that the race fee includes Afternoon Tea (English scones with cream and jam, pain au chocolat, french macarons and a hot chocolate). Thanks to our sponsors we will enjoy this feast with coffee (Lindvalls Kaffe) and tea (Tehörnan) under the protection of a large party tent (Partytältet). There will be delicious gluten free, vegan etc. options available so please tell us about any allergies etc. when you enter your crew.

We will have extra toilets on site (Toabolaget) and access to changing rooms and sauna after the race (Syltahallen, 5-10 min walk away).
