For those who want to drive: The racecourse is on the Schuylkill River between Strawberry Mansion bridge and the Columbia bridge, upriver from Boathouse Row. Race day traffic in either direction on Kelly Drive is detoured off Kelly Drive into Fairmount Park, where regatta parking ($12) is located. Shuttle buses run every 15 – 20 minutes down to the river from the parking lots. The shuttles drop fans at either the Canoe Club (near GA’s tent) or the Grandstand at the finish line.
To find GA’s hospitality tent: Parents and student-athletes are normally at the tent throughout the day. We are located about 200 yards downstream of the new St. Joe’s University/St. Joe’s Prep boathouse, and that is just downstream of the old Canoe Club. The tent is black and has a GA banner on it. Stop by, have some food and drink, and watch the races
