PAST NEWS

The provisional DRAW for the HOMERACE events is now online, and can be found here: https://regatta.time-team.nl/circh/2020/draw/races.php

New dates set for Canadian Indoor Rowing Challenge

The Canadian Indoor Rowing Challenge has been rescheduled for Saturday November 7 to Sunday November 8.

The virtual event, which was originally scheduled to take place September 19 to 20, was postponed due to the poor air quality levels affecting the British Columbia region and other parts of Canada from the devastating wildfires in the United States.

Registration is now open and closes on Saturday October 31. Late entries will be accepted unless you are taking part in the HomeRace Challenge option (late fees will apply). Individuals registered for the previous event date will automatically have their registration transferred to the new date.

Anyone with access to a Concept2 rowing machine can participate* by submitting their results online within the 48-hour event window.

Individuals can also choose to register for the HomeRace Challenge, real-time virtual races against High Performance rowers taking place Saturday November 7.

All Canadian registrants will be entered into a draw for the grand prize of an indoor rowing machine. The top three finishers in each race category will receive a digital certificate, and Canadian certificate recipients will be entered into a draw for one of 12 RCA merchandise packages.

More information on the Canadian Indoor Rowing Challenge, including prize details and the Competitor Handbook, can be found here.

As of Monday, October 26, group indoor ergometer programming will be considered sanctioned by RCA. More details and expectations are described here ( link to the member update: https://mailchi.mp/rowingcanada.org/world-cup-508666?e=81f1389b55).

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 (mdraper@rowingcanada.org).
