In the winter of 2015-16, Nashville Rowing recognized that one of the best ways to expand the footprint of our sport in Nashville and Middle Tennessee was to host an erg race, since many people's first experience with our dynamic movement is through erging. Also, an erg race fit beautifully within the Music City Racing Series concept - one Fall (head) race, one Winter race (erg), and one Spring (sprint) race.
As the race goes, we are excited to see both new faces and returning friends looking to tap into another year's worth of improvement! Even if this is your first foray into rowing and racing, we would love to have have you!
Shoot us a message at NashvilleTNRowing@gmail.com if you have any questions!
When and Where? [UPDATED!]
The 2018 Music City Erg Sprints will be on Sunday February 11th with doors and registration opening at 7 AM for athletes to begin arriving, and finishing before 3 PM. The Harpeth Hall School is hosting the race for us in their Gray Gym (second floor of the Athletic & Wellness Center) with ample parking available in front of the building. Here is the 2018 Regatta Information Packet with more information:
The erg races will be 2000m races in flights depending on the amount of entries in events. There will be a warm-up/cool-down erg area for athletes outside of racing and a Concession Stand to purchase healthy snacks and liquids.
