Tacoma Rowing is excited to host NWErgomania! for the first time.

We acknowledge that this event will be held on the homelands of the Puyallup Tribe and the Coastal Salish tribes. The Puyallup people have lived on and stewarded these lands since the beginning of time, and continue to do so today.

We recognize that this land acknowledgement is one small step toward true allyship and we commit to uplifting the voices, experiences, and histories of the Indigenous people of this land and beyond.

Date: 11 Feb 2023

Location: Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma

Registration: via Regatta Central

Contact: dave@tacomarowing.org

We will add more details here and on the Regatta Central site as the event draws near.

Our goals for the 2023 event:

  • Create a safe, fun racing atmosphere that is welcoming to all.

  • Competitive events for the PNW rowing community to show off its talent.

  • Get your feedback to create a bigger, better NWErgomania in 2024.


  • For the first time, NWErgomania will include non-binary and middle school race categories.

  • Rowing machines used on the day of the event will be available for sale afterwards. Email for information.

  • If you are interested in volunteering, please email us.

  • T-shirts will be available for pre-purchase during registration and a small quantity will be available on the day of the event.

  • Why is NWErgomania! not a USRowing sanctioned event this year? As a USRowing sanctioned event, NWErgomania! would require all participants to be members of USRowing, either individual or as part of an organizational member. We made this decision in an effort to reduce barriers to participation and improve access.


We will need volunteers to help with setup on Friday 10 Feb as well as the day of the event 11 Feb. Please complete the volunteer form or email us with questions.
