English Indoor Rowing Championships – Juniors Race Report


19 PBs, 8 hours on a coach, 6 medals, 3 first aiders, 1 human pyramid and half an hour of karaoke: this could only be a City junior day out. The popularity of the idea of a trip to the English Indoor Rowing Championships increased somewhat with two key details: the event took place in a velodrome and we would travel there by coach. Indeed, the juniors were not even deterred by two not insignificant problems: you have to do an erg test when you get there and you have to leave at 6am. And so, demonstrating their stupidity and the unwavering patience of their parents, a contingent of 19 juniors, aged 12 to 18, took to the ergs.

Adam does EIRC

Following on from my reasonable performance at the 2009 BIRC I decided to have a crack at the regional indoor rowing championships (thanks for the suggestion Barney!). Not only did this give me another target for which to train, but from studying past results I noticed that the standard is more comparable to my own level of “ability”.
