Eligibility Criteria

Athletes should refer to the Eligibility Criteria for each regatta, as listed in the individual Regatta Information Packages (available on the Row Ontario website and/or RegattaCentral).

NOTE: Athletes can participate at any point in the season. Trillium Chase events are open to all athletes, regardless of how many other Trillium Chase events they have raced previously. Athletes are not required to participate in every Trillium Chase event.

For various reasons, there were a few regattas that needed to be cancelled within the Trillium Chase series. In order to reflect this, Trillium Chase criteria has been revised. Athletes must compete in at least ONE erg, at least ONE established regatta and at least ONE Trillium Chase specific regatta.
