“The great thing about Oakland is it’s central location. You can explore Napa, San Francisco, the Southern Valley, and even go out as far out as Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park. We’re really hoping the competitors will want to bring their families out with them to make this whole experience a family vacation.”
Mark Everton, CEO, Visit Oakland
“Not many venues are located in the heart of a major metropolitan area. Merritt offers easy accessibility, beautiful park grounds and a rare chance to see the race course from any point around the lake. Outside of racing, attendees can enjoy Oakland’s vibrant restaurant scene and be surrounded by the social events that Visit Oakland has planned. Lake Merritt’s urban setting will make for a truly unique experience.”
AJ Dominique III, Senior Events Manager, USRowing
Dr. Aaron Baggish (Team cardiologist for USRowing) and his team from the Cardiovascular Performance Program at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston are seeking volunteer Masters rowers to participate in a research study. The study is examining the size of the aorta (the large artery in the chest) in Masters athletes. The goal of this research study is to better understand whether long-term training might lead to enlargement of the aorta.
This study will be conducted at the USRowing Masters National Championships at Lake Merritt and can be completed with a short visit (30 minutes duration) over the course of the regatta.
To be eligible to participate in the study, you must be a man or woman:
– Age 50 to 75
– Have at least 10 years of prior rowing experience
– Not have any known aortic disease
The study visit will include a questionnaire, blood pressure measurement, and a brief heart ultrasound (echocardiogram). Participation will involve only this single visit and no medications or follow-up visits are required.
Please click here to sign up for this study. You will receive a confirmation and additional follow-up information after registration.
