100km sponsored row to support Red Nose Day
A group of 23 rowers from St Neots Rowing Club took part in a 100km indoor rowing event to support Red Nose Day.
The 17 juniors and 6 senior men took one minute stints on two indoor rowing machines to notch up a total of 100 kms in just under 3 hours. Each minute was rowed with as much effort and speed as each rower could muster before jumping off the machine for the next person to seamlessly take over. With huge amounts of encouragement shared between the rowers and plenty of cake to keep them fuelled, they were all absolutely exhausted at the end of the three hours. But between them they have raised approximately £800 which will be split equally between St Neots Rowing Club and the Red Nose charity.
Club Captain Alistair Mackie, who was one of those taking part, said:
It was a very noisy three hours, but well worth every minute of it, I think! Every one of those taking part worked really hard and we finished the challenge in a very fast time indeed.”
