January Challenge: Row Across the Atlantic Ocean for Time

Because we are badass, we are going to have a challenge of EPIC proportions starting January first.

Our goal is to work as a team and row across the Atlantic for time. We are estimating the distance at 3,000 miles or 4.8 million meters.

Here’s how it works:

  • Rowing can be done before or after class and needs to be done in increments of 1,000 meters.
  • Workouts that include rowing count.
  • We will setup a scoresheet where you can record your distance rowed and time.
  • This will start Jan 1 and continue until we complete the last segment.
  • Once we complete the challenge, we will throw a party, with beer!  You can only attend if you have rowed at least 10,000 meters over the time period.
  • There will be small prizes for the people who row the most.

      I don’t think you have to worry about being back in time to contribute dear. If we want to finish this within a one month time span it would take 53 people rowing a 3k everyday for 30 days straight, sooooo I think it’s safe to say we’ll be doing this for quite some time.

  4. This sounds amazing! Question– can one row more than once per day? I.e. do a 1000m row, rest for a bit, then do another?

    1. Or better yet could one row more than one 10,000m in a day?
