Hammers are awarded as trophies.

The CRASH-B Sprints is the world championship for indoor rowing, raced over a distance of 2,000m. The regatta is sponsored by Concept2, and raced on their C2 rowers. Originally held in Harvard's Newell Boathouse, the regatta moved in turn to the Malkin Athletic Center, the Radcliff Quadrangle Athletic Center, MIT's Rockwell Cage, Harvard's Indoor Track Facility, the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center, Boston University's Agganis Arena, and in 2019, to the Boston University Track and Tennis Center.[1] The regatta is held in February each year.[2]

Competitors are 12 years old and up, including adaptive categories.[3][4] In 2019 there was an age group for 90-94 years old.[4]

The race began in 1980 by several former US Olympic rowers. The CRASH-B Sprints are officially sponsored by Concept 2.[5] Originally the name of the race, C.R.A.S.H.-B., stood for the Charles River Association of Sculling Has-Beens. It has been amended to Charles River All-Star Has-Beens.[6] The racing format has evolved over the history of the event. Now, all athletes race over 2,000 meters only once. Previously, there were heats and finals and other distances (2,500 m, 5 and 6 miles) were raced.
