Rowing Challenge March 2009


We held our first ever rowing challenge today – the aim was to do 150,000 meters on the ergos in 5 hours. We did this with over five minutes to spare!
The event took place at Kingston District Centre, MK (courtesy of Tesco Kingston). Starting at 10:00, we rowed 1,000 meters at a time, swapping over and rotating through the members who were there. The split times held up well through the day, obviously dropping towards the end. Can’t remember who did what distances but thanks to everyone who took part. Special mention to Tom, Lou’s son, who put in some (very welcome) late 1ks despite not rowing for us.
From memory, those who took part were (let me know if I’ve missed anyone):
Kirsten (8k), Nick (6k), John C (1k), John D (15k), Kieran (3k), Bethany (3k), Pierre-Yves (15k), Paula (15k), Jo (4k), Clare (15k), Steve (15k), Mariano (9k), Lou (9k), Tom (5k!), Mike (9k) and Becks (3k). Oh, and me (15k).
