Today, the last Sunday in August offers a wrap up of the summer month with a curious mixture of long regattas, marathons really to loudly squeak out the remains of the season. A rower’s endurance is measured for a Chicago Dirty Dozen and more.
Back again this year is the first in a series of three endurance regattas planned for Chicago on the Chicago River at the Dammrich Boathouse. Today the Chicago Dirty Dozen 3k Challenge will be held for three committed sculling entries from one club hosted by the Alliance Rowing Club of Illinois. On tap for September is a 5k followed by a final 6k in October.
