BRC Fundraising Challenge Erg-a-thon

It’s all systems go for Birmingham Rowing Club’s next fundraising event – a Challenge Erg-a-thon!

The week before the highly-anticipated Boat Race, around 25 BRC members will collectively row the distance from Birmingham to London, along the famous Boat Race course from Putney to Mortlake, and back home to Birmingham. It’s a distance of 384km – we’ll be rowing it as quickly as we possibly can, and as it’s a sponsored event, we’ll be raising money along the way!

The Challenge Erg-a-thon will take place at Birmingham’s Cannon Hill Park on Saturday 17th March, coinciding with the popular weekly ParkRun. Alongside our challenge athletes, we’ll have a rowing machine available for members of the public to try out rowing and maybe take away details of the Club’s spring/summer Learn to Row courses.

Taking place on the launch day of Sport Relief, we’re hoping to celebrate our wonderful sport of rowing, so if you’re in Birmingham on 17th, come down and support us!
