The ROWfit Virtual Indoor Rowing Series aims to help develop home- and club-based virtual Indoor racing to temporarily replace the usual IIRC Race Series of the PROVINCES IRC and the Irish Indoor Rowing Championships due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The continued and potential travel restrictions and hazards necessitate that the IIRC 2021 now become the 4th IRC in our race series as V-IIRC 2021 (Virtual IIRC)
