In the absence of races this season, Liverpool University Boat Club will be hosting a Virtual Head race to close off the calendar year. 


This event is 100% virtual and participants can row in their own home with an erg. Competitors will only need:

A Concept 2 Rowing Machine

A USB (V2) A-to-B Cable

Windows laptop/tablet 

A stable internet connection.

This Virtual Race allows clubs to enter rowers in crew sizes of either a single, double or quad and the app will work out the average splits of that crew. Each event also has a Weight Corrected category. 

A demo can be found here:

Crews do not need to be in the same location during the race so please ensure all Government/BR Rules are followed during the race.


The Senior event is 5000m long and will be on Saturday 12th December. This is a good chance for senior rowers to compare themselves to other rowers and to get a current 5k test time.

The Novice event is 1500m long and will be on Sunday 13th December. This will be an excellent first race experience and a great way to see how your novices compare to other Universities.

Medals will be awarded to the winner of each category and shipped to your club.
