Thank you to all who came to NJIRC 2010! It was a huge success - with over 3,000 entries over the day! You came, you played football, parkour, basketball and tried your handing at Brushboarding, the climbing wall and even Boxing!

We saw some incredible races, and had lots of fantastic people come down to cheer you on including the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race Teams, a variety of Olympians including Katherine Grainger, Tom James, Mark Hunter, Tom Solesbury and Andy Hodge.

NJIRC t-shirts are still available - send an email to saying what size you'd like, and how many and we'll let you know how to pay if the size if available.

THANK YOU for making NJIRC the biggest junior indoor rowing event in the world!

NJIRC Blog begins!


Welcome to the NJIRC blog! We've created this blog to offer young people interested in Indoor Rowing a platform to talk about the sport, why they love it and let everyone know what they're up to, whether it be preparing for the competition, winning borough competitions, or reaching their goals!
We'll also be letting everyone know about what's happening with NJIRC - the latest updates about who's coming, what's going on, what activities are going to be there - and then let you all argue about who's going to win!

If at anytime you would like to contribute to this blog - send us an email at and we'll post up what you send us, or alternatively, just comment on our posts. Whether it be videos, pictures, interviews or your opinions on everything and anything about rowing - we'd love to hear from you.

Looking forward to hearing from you all!
