Munster #Blitzit — UL Sports Arena March 8
Our 2024 Munster #Blitz will take place on March 8 at the Sports Arena at the University of Limerick.
Races will be 2000m relays on indoor rowing machines. The competition will begin at roughly 10am, starting with the first-year categories of local schools, and run until roughly 3pm. There are separate categories for girls and boys based on school year, rowing experience, and of course our rowability categories so that everyBODY gets a chance to compete and see just how much they’re capable of!
Medals will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each race. The Ailish Sheehan Cup will be awarded to the Best Girls School and the Arthur O’Brien Cup will go to the Best Boys School.
In 2023 we had more than 1,200 participants, and this year we hope to have even more. Schools from across Ireland are very welcome to join us in Munster for what will be a day of great fun for everyone, whether you have participated recently in a Get Rowing programme or not. Registration costs €25 per team (or €5 per student).
Please use the form below to enter your teams according to their year group and experience level—teams with 3 or more experienced rowers (those who row or have rowed for clubs) must enter the “Open” categories, all other athletes should enter their year group categories.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email Amy at LimerickCoordinator@RowingIreland.ie. We look forward to welcoming your school and cheering on your students while they put their rowing skills to the test!
