Do you dare? 2019 World Rowing Virtual Indoor Sprints
Wherever you are in the world, if you have access to an indoor rowing machine, we dare you to join us for a 1000m sprint.
The 2019 World Rowing Virtual Indoor Sprints is on again and here’s how it works: You have 5 days (6-10 March, 2019) to complete 1000m on the Concept2 indoor rowing machine (no Dynamic or indoor rowers on slides), then submit your score using the Concept2 logbook. Your score will be compared with people in your category from around the world. You can see how you measure up.
Go on. Dare your … self. Dare your …bestie. Dare your … coach. Dare your … neighbour.
Then share your dare on World Rowing Facebook and Instagram @WorldRowingOfficial by using #WRVISprints
