The 30th annual TIRC was held in Chattanooga on Feb 8th this year. At the TIRC’s they use an age handicap system for all racers over 40 years of age. Everyone 40 and over rows at the same time. Age handicaps are set in advance based on the number of years over 40. They then take your raw 2K time, deduct your handicap time and medals are awarded based on those adjusted times.
