USRowing Indoor National Championships Time Standards

Concept2 will offer a travel stipend to the USRowing Indoor National Championships hosted by the CRASH-Bs for athletes that meet the time standard at a Concept2 sanctioned race in the USA or Canada. Sanctioned races will be designated as such on our race calendar. The stipend is open to people of any nationality, but sanctioned races are currently only held in the USA and Canada.

To receive the travel stipend, you must do the following:

  • Row in a 2,000m event at a sanctioned race on our online calendar and meet the time standards below.
  • You must race at the USRowing Indoor National Championships in the same weight category as you do in the sanctioned race .
  • Complete the online form for time standard qualifiers. We will need your name, date of birth, the race location you met the time standard at, your race event and your 2,000m result.
  • Make your own travel arrangements to Boston, MA.
  • You will receive a $200 travel stipend from Concept2 after you have competed at the national championships.

Sanctioned races can be found on the race calendar.
