About INdoor Rowing
Thousands of people have already discovered the thrill of racing on the indoor rower. If you’re ready to join their ranks then this section is for you!
The sport of indoor rowing was created in 1981 when Concept2 developed its first rowing machine and, within a year, the first race had taken place. Hundreds of indoor rowing races are now held around the world each year, including the World Indoor Rowing Championships
How it works
Concept 2 ergos (rowing machines) are connected together and races are conducted with numerous rowers racing the same distance at the same time. The machines display all the ergo information as a virtual regatta (see below) which shows the audience how the race is unfolding in real time.
Who can compete
Anyone 12 years and older can compete, and all levels of experience are welcome.
We have a range of distances available included 500m, 1000m, 2000m, and a 30sec sprint
We will group the races into Age Groups or based on your predicted finish time, depending on the event
Is this just for rowers?
Absolutely not! We encourage everyone and anyone who uses the ergo (rowing machine) and wants to test themselves in a fun environment. There will be range of athletes participating and you will be grouped by age and predicted finish time.
