Half Marathoners Row at Erg-A-Thon!

Good luck to  Augustin, Eleanor, Gabi, Georgia, John, Macy,  Parker, Rachel & Ryan !

These 9 athletes will be attempting to row a half marathon, or 13.1 miles on Saturday March 9th in Gaslight Village. between 10-12:30 pm.  Support them & pledge $1 a mile, $3, $5 or $10 per mile to these athletes as they row to raise funds for a new boat for their team!  Rowers are reaching out to the community this month to raise awareness not only about their team, but for Spectrum’s Irish Jig 5K Mission as well: research for a cure for colorectal cancer, the #2 killer of men and women in the U.S.

This event will occur rain, snow or shine. A half marathon is not easy running or rowing. This will be a significant challenge and requires weeks of training leading up to it. Rowers will hydrate and receive food every 20-30 minutes as needed and will be cheered on and supported by our coaches and teammates, who will also be rowing in 30 minute segments alongside from 8-1 p.m on the 19th!  Row EAST!
