The 2013 indoor race season is getting closer! Are you training for 2000m? If you aren’t yet, you may want to consider starting now so you can row a personal best at the 2013 World Indoor Rowing Championships (WIRC) in Boston on Sunday, February 17, hosted by the CRASH-B Sprints at Boston University’s Agganis Arena.
If you live in the US or Canada, you can qualify for a round-trip ticket to the WIRC in Boston! You need to row at a satellite race (see our race calendar for locations) and meet or beat the qualifying time for your event. Times are based on age groups and weight. You don’t need to qualify to row in Boston—it’s open to the public.
Indoor rowing races are exciting, and allow you to compete with all levels, including first-timers, competitive age groupers, and even Olympians.
Remember that indoor racing is for all age groups, even into the 90s! A majority of the races are fundraisers that help support an on water program, so if you have a race close to you (satellite or non-satellite), go check them out. Races are held from January through March. Who knows, if you row at a satellite race, you may end up in Boston!
