The 2019 USRowing National Championships, hosted by the Clermont County Convention and Visitors Bureau, will be held July 9-14, 2019, on Harsha Lake in Bethel, Ohio.
Most recently known as the USRowing “Club” National Championships, the event will drop “Club” from its title moving forward and be rebranded as the USRowing National Championships to reflect the re-integration of the elite-level race categories. The regatta also will be expanded to six days and will crown national champions in the U17, U19, intermediate and elite/senior categories.
“We are excited to bring our summer national championship event back to Lake Harsha for the next three years. Lake Harsha has a long and storied history of hosting some of our nation’s top events. We look forward to working with the Clermont County Convention and Visitors Bureau to put on three spectacular regattas for our athletes, coaches and fans and to continue to invest in a great venue at East Fork State Park.”
– Patrick McNerney, CEO, USRowing
“The Clermont County CVB is very honored to be selected by USRowing to host the national championships for the next three years from 2019 through 2021. Our previous experience with hosting successful events in 2015-2017, great local organizing committee, loyal volunteers and ability to get local sponsors involved were all positive factors in landing this national event.”
– Jeff Blom, President, Clermont County Convention and Visitors Bureau
