The Scottish Indoor Rowing Championships were held on Saturday 29th October, Bellahouston, Glasgow.  The championships are an annual event that attracts competitors from rowing and non-rowing backgrounds from across the UK and Europe.

The rowing championships offers inclusive competition opportunities for para rowers who also compete within the mainstream championships.

Individual competitors raced in the male and female adapted 1kilometre event in the quickest possible time. It provides a stage for indoor rowing enthusiasts to test themselves on a national level and assess their own performance and progress.

Pictured above with John Blair from Scottish Rowing are members of the Phoenix Rowing Club who competed at the event, some for the first time, some to beat their Personal Best and row for selection for Scottish Squads and Invictus Games 2017.
