Summary Boys' Head of the Lake

This is the traditional event of the Head of the Lake.

As you will note, the race has been very evenly spread amongst Grammar, College and St Patrick's.

The race has been conducted over 2000m for most of the time the race has been contested. The drought of the mid 2000s has seen the race conducted at both Nagambie Lakes and the Barwon River. The Barwon River venue is 1500m.

The best time over 2000m is 6 mins 43.42 secs by Ballarat Grammar in 2002.
