Get onto your indoor rowing machine and see how many metres you can clock up between the dates of 22 November and 24 December 2018.  There are two challenge levels to choose from, 100k or 200k, and categories for all ages and abilities.

How to Participate:

  1. You’ll need an Online Logbook at (it's FREE!) and all of your meters must be entered into your Online Logbook. If you don't already have one, visit the Online Logbook home page to register. Kids' Challenge participants need to set up an individual logbook (using a parent's email address is fine).
  2. After each workout, record your metres in your Online Logbook. Try ErgData, our free app, which makes it easy to upload your meters with the push of button.
  3. Visit the Challenges page in your Online Logbook. When you've reached your goal, the Challenges page of the Online Logbook automatically recognizes your achievement and displays instructions for claiming your rewards.

This challenge can also be done on a BikeErg or a SkiErg. As well as the Kafue River & Rowing Centre you can also choose from three other not-for-profit charities – Protect Our Winters, World Bicycle Relief and Little Bellas.  For more information on Kafue click here.

If you can’t decide, you can let Concept2 allocate your meters; or, you can opt not to support any of the charities. For full details on how your meters will support the charity you choose, click here

Please send us photos or videos of you taking part in the challenge to our World Rowing Instagram account. The pictures/videos with the highest amount of metres completed will feature on our Instagram page.

In addition to supporting the charity of your choice, you’ll earn a free downloadable certificate for completion, and other Holiday Challenge items will be available for purchase online.  For complete details, visit Concept2’s Holiday Challenge page. 

Note: because meters accumulate faster on the bike—roughly twice as fast for the same level of work—your bike metres will be halved before being applied to the Challenge.
