• Welcome to the IIRC Race Series Website.

    The ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic has resulted in clear Governmental and HSE guidelines designed to safeguard us all. While we are temporarily curtailed in our activities
    keep in mind the genuine sacrifices being made by the Frontline workers and their families. Well done to you all.

    Six people at an indoor event is going to make the upcoming PROVINCES Indoor Rowing Competition both small and unentertaining; But never fear as ROWfit saw the writing on the wall and had a backup plan. We're going virtual!

    While we are still committed to running the PIRC as the timely and exciting event you have come to know, we now intend it to be the culmination of a Series of Virtual IRCs run each month starting with Event No. 1 on Saturday 3rd October 2020. a 2nd Event will take place 3-4 weeks later and the PIRC ought to go ahead on or near it's scheduled date.

    Each event will be viewable LIVE online to both competitors and spectators alike on a webpage application

    Recently World Rowing Indoor announced that the 2021 World IRC would be virtual - so let's get practicing.
    As with any new technology or method it will take some time to get used to. Hence each IRC will hopefully allow both competitors and organisers to fully develop toward the PIRC in November.

    We intend trialling new distances (5k's anyone), pod-racing (club-run and socially distanced ergs) and making racing at the PROVINCES IRC accessible to those who can't travel or who want to, but are prohibited by distance but can now (down the telephone line!) from anywhere in the World.

    Virtual racing might be the ultimate in social-distancing but our experienced commentators and MC's will hopefully bring the races to life for all our viewing pleasure. Competitors have to supply their own buckets though - we haven't quite cracked virtual cleanups yet

    All events are open status, requiring no pre-qualification times or club affiliation.

    Please follow the IMPORTANT MEDICAL INFORMATION on the Rules, Terms & Conditions.
