SPORT SOCIAL: In an effort to keep our athletes, volunteers, staff and community safe and due to a lack of venue space for social distancing, the Games has made the difficult decision to forgo sport socials this year. Instead, you will receive a second dinner ticket that can be redeemed at any of our partner restaurants. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. We sincerely hope that you will take advantage of the dinner tickets and enjoy some meals with your friends.

  • Rowers must compete under their own names. Use of pseudonyms or other false identification will lead to disqualification and a possible lifetime ban from participation in future Huntsman Indoor Rowing Championship (HIRC) events.
  • Entrants are not permitted to compete in place of friends or teammates. There are no entry substitutions for liability reasons.
  • All rowers are responsible to check the official race time for their event, as of race day.
  • All competitors must wear a shirt to cover their torso and shorts while on the event floor. Uni-suits, bodysuits, all-in-ones are also allowed.
  • Rowers may set the drag factor BEFORE their races begin, but may not adjust the setting during the race itself. Doing so will lead to disqualification. This is the Charley Butt rule.
  • Due to safety concerns, use of headphones during the competitions is strongly discouraged.
  • The use of performance enhancing drugs is not permitted.
  • Competitors and spectators are not allowed to bring food into the rowing arena. Additionally, food consumption is NOT allowed on the competition floor.
  • All competitors will row on Concept2  Ergometers with PM3+ monitors.
  • BatLogic footplates are not allowed on the competition floor due to scheduling restrictions and ensuring that all athletes have consistent equipment on which to race.
  • Qualification times are not required by the HIRC. The event is open to all competitors regardless of experience/skill levels.
  • The Format for the HIRC Sprints is “finals only.” Competitors will be seeded based upon their submitted erg scores and row only once- there are no heats. Keep in mind many events are large enough to require multiple heats to accommodate all athletes. The best overall time will win each event.
  • All entrants must be 50+ in the year 2021 in order to compete. No exceptions.
  • Physical contact between athletes and coxswains/coaches is not allowed while racing. Violators will be asked to leave the competition floor.
Medals:  Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each event for each age division.  Medals will be presented at the completion of each event. The director reserves the right to combine age groups if there are less than 4 in an age group.
