CRASH-B Sprints (World Indoor Rowing Championships) Boston, MA, Feb. 14th

(links wfs)

http://www.crash-b.org/web/

Come witness sub-6:00 2Ks and other physical feats, or better yet, put yourself to the test! The CRASH-B's are cheap ($25 for competitors, free admission for spectators), open to people of all ages and abilities (including people with disabilities, in fact) and have a great atmosphere.

There are dozens of affiliates within driving distance, but only a few CFers registered to date. What's stopping you?
You have until Feb. 1st to sign up (http://www.roninregistration.com/inf...oType=Register) and almost a month to work on your stroke.

See you there.


Edit: There are also plenty of other races scheduled around the country. http://www.concept2.com/us/racing/calendar/default.asp

I am planning on rowing the Satillite Qualifier in Seattle on Jan 30th. I can't pull a Sub-6. But if I can pull a 6:40 I will be pretty happy.

Everybody should at least check out thier regionals.

I'll be unavailable, but 2011 might work out!

I am going to be at the satellite regatta in St. Louis, my first ever rowing competition. Looking for sub 6:45. Should be a good time.

And remember, the 2009 CF Games champions should be there.

Test Yourself in Indoor Rowing Championship Series

The fastest growing population of indoor rowing competitors are CrossFitters. The CRASH-B's - the World Indoor Rowing Championships are great - but there are regional qualifying regattas all over the US too. Winners from the bigger, better events that are certified by Concept 2 have their way paid to Boston in February. The Seattle Qualifying event is called Ergomania! and is held on January 30th this year at Seattle University's Connolly Center. See http://www.nwergomania.org There are at least eight CrossFit Teams entered in the Seattle event, plus teams of Firefighters, Marines, and others, plus individuals in 1 hour, 30 minute, 2k, and 1k events for Juniors, Open, and Masters events. The reigning master's women's world champion, Luann Mills, is a Seattlite, and last year all four of the C-2 funded Seattle athletes made the final and placed. Find out how you measure up - join us on the 30th.
