RULES TO WIN an ERG in the GO THE DISTANCE RACE

.

Each rower who competes in the 4 minute GO THE DISTANCE race will be given a ballot to win a new CONCEPT 2 Model D Ergometer with a PM5 monitor. The erg will be one of the new ergs (black) used at the Canadian Indoor Rowing Championships.

.

Every rower who races in this event CIRC on February 9, 2020 will have a ballot automatically entered at the end of their race.  The erg will be awarded by random draw at the end of the race and is not based on the distance rowed.  

.

Eligibility for the Draw

  • Must  pay entry fee for the Go the Distance race - $30. 
  • Must compete and finish the Go the Distance race and register a score.
  • You must be age 13 by December 31, 2020 to compete at CIRC.

.

Draw

The prize will be awarded based on a draw from all eligible ballots.  The draw will take place immediately following the completion of all flights of the Go the Distance race category. The time for the draw will be approximately 4:30 p.m. Transportation of the ergometer from the Paramount Fine Foods Centre (the race venue), in Mississauga will be the responsibility of the winning competitor. 

.

Ballots

Eligible ballots must be complete, include a name and address and include a valid stamp from a CIRC lane score with the erg score as proof of racing.   Rank or placement in the race is not relevant. All racers will receive just one ballot, Ballots are pre-printed and will be stamped by lane official.  Racers do not have to fill it in. 

.

Odds of Winning the Erg

Space is limited by the number of lanes available in this this race category. Odds of winning will be limited to the number of competitors racing in the Go the Distance 4 minute race.   For example if there are 50 entered the odds of winning are 1 in 50, if there are 10, the odds are 1 in 10, etc. Chances of winning an erg in 2019 were 1 in 31 which is amazing odds. Even if you don't win the erg, the charity you support wins!

.

Entry Fee - Go the Distance

The cost to enter the race is $30 only. 100% of entry fees for this event are donated to a Charity.  The CIRC Organizing Committee has selected Jesse’s Journey as the charity to support in our 2020 Go-to-the-Distance Race. Jesse’s Journey is Canada’s leading charity in the fight to defeat Duchenne muscular dystrophy – the most common fatal genetic disease diagnosed in childhood. Affecting approximately 1 in every 5,000 boys in Canada, Duchenne gradually weakens the body’s muscles and ultimately leads to the deterioration of vital organs, such as the heart and lungs. Jesse’s Journey supports patients, families, and caregivers living with Duchenne and funds the most promising research to improve the lives of boys and young men.
