RaceDay Challenge English



The year 2020 will go down in history for sport.  Corona has a firm grip on us, but a brave group in a small country rebels against it.  A horde of oarsmen continues with simple means.  And like all other challenges, there is nothing to win in this competition, and you do not receive a medal.  All rowers, female and male from clubs or private, are authorized to start and as an administrator I trust the accuracy of the data provided.

Please note that all sports facilities are still closed! KEEP  DISTANCE  – STAY  HEALTHY


The participants should try to cover as many meters as possible on the rowing ergometer in a given time of 4. 6 or 8 minutes.  Every race weekend consists of a heat on Saturday and a final on Sunday , similar to a regatta. The athletes in their virtual final run are always grouped after the meter performance of the heat. All competitions are carried out exclusively on Concept2 (Model B-E) rowing machines.

The following minutes must be rowed:
4 minutes: schooler and masters male and female
6 minutes: Juniors B male and female
8 minutes: Juniors A, U23 and Senior male and female
Lw male < 75 Kg, female < 61,5 Kg

The RaceDay schedule:
May 2 / 3, 2020
May 30/31, 2020
June 27/28, 2020
