The University Indoor Rowing Series (UIRS) provides fast and competitive racing over a number of distances. Events are designed for everyone, providing an enjoyable experience for both newcomers to indoor rowing and seasoned fitness enthusiasts.

Each host university is required to provide a certain number of national categories, with many choosing to run additional competitions for the local audiences near to their venue.

Many universities applied to be a host venue, enabling the series to offer a variety of competitions in different locations around the country.

On Saturday 2 November the series kicks off at the GBRT First Assessment, followed by an event at Durham University, three days prior to the University of Leeds hosting their event.

Bristol University is next to host on Sunday 10 November, with the University of Surrey following up on 17 November and the University of Leicester then hosting on 20 November,

The series is closed out on Saturday 23 November, with Sheffield Hallam University hosting on the same day as the Scottish Rowing Indoor Championships and the Welsh Indoor Rowing Championships.

Institutions are able to enter their competitors into the BUCS Rowing Indoor Championships for inclusion in the governing bodies’ UK-wide competition for higher education students. BUCS points will be awarded on a national basis to winning competitors in the UIRS who represent their university.
