500 meter, 1000 meters or 2000 meters.  If you are wishing to qualify for the US Rowing National Indoor Rowing Championships  you must enter a 2000 meter race.

Damper Settings

The Concept II Model D indoor rower will be used for the race.  Competitors may chose the damper setting they prefer but cannot change the setting during the race.


All races will be finals.  In events with more than ten entries, seeded heats will be created based on the erg score submitted with the entry form.  The fastest time recorded during all the heats for a particular event will be the winner.


First, second and third place medals will be awarded to the fastest times in each category.

Veteran Events

We will be running one event for all the veterans.  Note: Concept 2 and US Rowing break the veterans’ category up further; we do not due to lack of entries.  Although we will run all the veterans at the same time, competitors can still qualify in their age group (see Us Rowing qualifying chart for an entry to the US Rowing National Indoor Rowing Championships )

Lightweight Events

All weights are listed below.  Lightweight will compete in their age categories and fastest lightweight will medal within that category.  Those that wish to qualify for US Rowing National Indoor Rowing Championships must weight in 1-2 hours prior to their event for qualification purposes, even though their event at this regatta is not a lightweight event. 


  • Open (no restrictions)
  • Lightweight (men 75 kilos and under, women 61.5 kilos and under) 
  • Junior Lightweight (men 150 lbs and under, women 130 lbs and under)
  • Junior (ages 14-18, must have been born on or after Jan. 1, 2002 and be enrolled in high school (or lower grade) as of race day.)
