The English Indoor Rowing Championships brings together people of all ages and abilities & is the perfect way to end a year of competing, whether as a team or as an individual.

The event took place 5th February 2017, and the next is planned for early February in 2018.

Racing begins at approximately 8.30am, with doors opening at 7am for competitors racing in the first event of the day. In most cases all reasonable efforts will be made to ensure 500m events are scheduled after 2K events. However of course please note that the Organising Committee reserve the right to change the order of racing at any time.
