Achieve Your Personal Record

Personal goals and improvement are more important than CIRC, US or World records. Many of our competitors show up year after year as they continue to improve their health by maintaining their fitness. CIRC wants to encourage and recognize their efforts.

CIRC Times by Competitor
(2K, 10K and 1K Adaptive Eligible)

How to be recognized
All you need do is break your prior Personal Record 2K time. These are valid Prior 2K times:

1. Listed in the Men’s / Women’s Historical 2K Times above or
2. 2K time submitted by your coach via Regatta Central Registration or
3. Verified 2K time posted on the Concept2 Logbook or
4. 2K time submitted by your coach or Personal Trainer

The fastest time from any one of the above take precedence.
