Devon Indoor Rowing Championships

The Devon Indoor Rowing Championships is an annual event organised by Fitness Matters. Entrants of all ages and abilities are invited to enter – it’s a fun and challenging day for all! In our 2018 event, there was a prize draw for all those racing for the chance to win their choice of a Rower, BikeErg or SkiErg. International entries are FREE to all racers.

 

 

What is it?

An indoor rowing race event, open to all ages and abilities. Races are likely to be seeded to match abilities. If participant numbers are high enough then the races will take place in age group and weight categories, however, medals will be awarded in age categories. We will be using race venue software.

Main Events:

5000m and/or 1000m

Kids : 4 Minute race (year 7 and higher) / 2 Minute (up to year 6)

Kids: 100m for all entries too.

 

When is it?

Date : September 2019.

Where is it?

Location: St Martin’s C of E Primary school in Cranbrook, Exeter
Facilities: Toilets, showers, changing rooms.
Transport links: A link to the venue is here, along with directions to the school. There is plenty of parking directly outside in the school car park. One thing to note is that Cranbrook is a newly built village and sat nav doesn’t pick up the exact location of the school as it still has it located as a field !! So please read the directions for the last few hundred metres. It is very simple.

Accommodation: Premier Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Gipsy Hill hotel are all extremely close to the M5 and the college. There are many other hotels and differing accommodation located around Exeter, all within 10 minutes travel time.

How do I pay?

You have two options: you can transfer your entrance fee directly to Fitness Matters Ltd. When payment is live, make sure you complete the form below though so we can match your bank payment with your entry. OR, you can pay via online card payment/Paypal (there will be a small transaction fee to cover the cost of using this method to cover our charge). Both options are at the bottom of this page.

*International entrants will be free excluding Scotland and Wales. Please be sure you will be able to attend to avoid disrupting our race schedule.

Other details: For any other details regarding the event, or advice and support in training for either distance please email sam@fitnessmatters.me.uk.
