Canadian Indoor Rowing Challenge – Event Postponed

RCA has been monitoring the air quality situation affecting the British Columbia region and other parts of Canada due to the devastating wildfires in the United States. The current air quality levels remain poor with more uncertainty heading into the event weekend of September 19-20. RCA’s advisory for ‘no group indoor activity’ also remains in effect and thus these two factors have led us to make the difficult decision to postpone the Canadian Indoor Rowing Challenge.

We are working on confirming a new event date and will communicate these details shortly.

All current registrants will automatically have their registration transferred to the new event date. We will also offer refunds if requested.

We certainly share in your disappointment however we must prioritize the health and well-being of all our participants. We look forward to announcing our event re- launch in the near future.

For questions or refund requests, please contact RCA Events Manager, Matt Draper (

All Canadian registrants will be entered into a draw for the GRAND PRIZE of an indoor rowing machine, which will be shipped directly to the winner. The winner will have the option of choosing between a Concept2 or WaterRower machine (of up to a maximum value of CAD$2000).

The top three finishers in each race category will receive a digital certificate. In the event that there are three or less entries in a race category, certificates will be allocated using the ‘Minus One’ rule (for example, if there are only three entries in a race, only certificates for first and second place will be awarded). Certificates will not be awarded in race categories with just one participant.

In addition, Canadian certificate recipients will be entered into a draw for one of the following 12 RCA merchandise packages:

3 Top Prizes (1 per race distance – 500m, 1000m, 2000m)
