ErgRace is software to run indoor races, designed to replace the existing Venue Race Application. While the primary use for ErgRace at the moment is to connect together Concept2 Indoor Rowers, it can also be used to connect Concept2 SkiErgs and BikeErgs.

ErgRace supports both individual and team races, as well as time, distance and Calorie races.

While ErgRace has been successfully used for several big races, we advise you to thoroughly test out ErgRace for your use cases prior to your event.

We recommend you be prepared to fallback to using Venue Race if it becomes necessary.


  • Individual or team races
  • A new experimental race type “Mixed Erg” for handling races such as triathlons featuring more than one machine per athlete. This can only be used with recent PM5s running the latest beta firmware.
  • Races can be for time, distance or Calories
  • Three different race displays: scrolling boat view, hybrid view, leaderboard view
  • Any computer on the same network is able to run the race display
  • Produces PDF results at the end of the race. Ability to merge results from two or more races.


There is an online manual available. This is a work in progress and is kept up-to-date with any known issues and workarounds. We recommend you read this prior to your race.
