The next online race is a 1,000m test which will be open for entries between 30-31 May. Before then, however, we are encouraging indoor rowers worldwide to log their training metres on our platform with the shared goal of accumulating, as one singular community, 384.4 million metres – the distance from Earth to the Moon. The challenge was announced yesterday alongside Rowing Canada Aviron, Rowing Australia and Rowing NZ and is open for pre-registrations now! More details here.
