Rockies Rowing Club

2019 Ergathon Fundraiser

On Saturday April 13, 2019 Rockies Rowing Club is set to host its first ever ERGATHON; a Head to Head Relay simulated rowing race. This event will take place in Cranbrook at the Tamarack Centre from 10 am - 4 pm . Our mission is to raise awareness about rowing and training, increase membership and raise funds to support our club. Thanks to our community supporters: Flaman Fitness, Culligan Water, the HeidOut and Huckleberry Books.

Join us on the day or make an online donation!

Rockies Rowing Club has been providing rowing opportunities since 2001, training rowers who have gone on to row and race at University and beyond as well as rowers who find the recreational aspect of rowing benefiting them socially and physically. In order to keep our programs affordable we have kept our fees reasonable which means we need to raise funds in order to acquire the equipment made available to members of the club. In recent years we have built our own trailer to transport boats and increased the number of seats we had from 6-12, by purchase of boats. Our equipment is aging so we are fundraising to acquire new sculling oars, sweep oars, uniforms and other necessary equipment to help grow the best kept secret that operates on Jim Smith Lake.

The planned ERGATHON is a very exciting opportunity for our youth, some of whom are up and coming college, university or other club athlete hopefuls and for our faithful, long time members who simply row for the love of the sport.

Our rowers will row on a rowing simulator off the water for a duration of 5-6 hours and wil cover 100,000 metres. We would like to call on your support by having you come out and cheer on our rowers, and if you are so inclined to give some time on a rowing machine and a donation!
