About

RMRC is the largest and oldest chartered 501(c)3 rowing organization in the Rocky Mountains. We have over 120 adult members, each of whom, with certification, has the entitlement to responsibly row any boat in the boathouse at any time the weather and water conditions permit.

Our enclosed boathouse…

is on the southwest shore of Cherry Creek Reservoir, in Cherry Creek State Park, in the suburbs south of Denver, near the confluence of I-25 and I-225. (Use the West Entrance.) Our programs extend from beginning Learn-to-Row through international competitive training. While rowers can use club equipment at any time, the bulk of our rowers launch starting at 5:30 AM, seven days a week, during the rowing season.

For competitive rowers…

there are usually at least a half-dozen local and regional competitions each summer. RMRC members have medalled at US and Canadian Masters Nationals Sprints and Head Races, Pan American Games, and World Rowing Championships. RMRC boats at one time or another have held the course record at the Head Of The Charles regatta.

Memberships…

are available for individuals, families and students. We welcome visiting rowers who are active members of other clubs according to standard reciprocity practices.

High School aged rowers…

are encouraged to contact our sister club, Mile High Rowing Club, for more information geared towards junior level rowers.

Rowing…

is a quiet, non-polluting, strenuous self-propelled, wakeless exercise. It is considered an ideal physical conditioning activity, as it utilizes all major muscle groups, and combines many of the most advantageous cardiovascular attributes of both aerobic exercise and weight training. As a result, rowers share with cross country skiers the distinction of being, statistically, the highest-conditioned athletes of any popular competitive sport.

Socially speaking…

Rowing is a social sport as well, with male, female and mixed boats that range from single-seat, pairs/doubles, fours/quads and eight person shells. Recreational rowers of both genders can expect to participate in this non-impact sport their entire active lives. Competitive rowers can participate in domestic and international Masters events that are organized by age and/or handicapped for athletes up to 90 years old.
