Welcome to Prouty: Row! The Prouty Row takes place on the beautiful Connecticut River launching and landing from the Kendal Riverfront Park rowing docks at 84 Lyme Road, Hanover, NH. Prouty Row is not timed, nor is it considered a "race." You can choose your own distance: 5, 10, 15 or up to 20 miles, in an "out and back" format. Mile buoys mark the distances.

Prouty Row takes place on Saturday, July 13 in Hanover, NH.

NEW for 2024: The famous Prouty Row SAG stop (“stop and go” with food and drink) will be hosted at Kendal River Front in 2024 instead of at the turnaround of the 15 mile route in Lyme. This will allow rowers of all levels to partake in this celebratory SAG stop.
