Burton Head - 3.5km Head Race
Burton Head was founded in 2006, although due to the inaugural event being called off due to flooding, the first Burton Head was held in 2007.
The event is raced on a beautiful stretch of the River Trent over a 3.5km downstream course, with a shorter 2km race being held for younger competitors. The start of the 3.5km race is alongside the Riverside Hotel in Branston. The race progresses past the Branston Golf Club where the 2km race starts, through Stapenhill, finishing at the Burton Regatta finish line on the Burton Regatta Meadows.
Burton Head is organised and hosted by both Burton Leander and Trent Rowing Clubs and, unlike Burton Regatta which is held on the Regatta Meadows around 1km upstream of the local Clubs boathouses, the head is run from the Clubs premises on Stapenhill Road, next to the Burton Bridge.
