The 5,000 meter head race on the Brazos River rows through some of the most beautiful spots in Waco. The course starts just above the Herring Bridge by Cameron Park and travels eastward, passing by the historic ALICO building and the new McLane Stadium, finishing by the Baylor Boathouse where the boats will launch and dock. This is the only 5,000 meter race in the state of Texas! Spectator seating will be offered near the boathouse. The course also rows underneath nine bridges, providing more great options for spectator viewing.
