The Centurion Challenge is where a club nominates one person to row 100km, on Sunday 12th September.
As part of the selection process the nominee will select or create a rowing outreach programme to fundraise for.
Once put forward, the Nominee will be supported and celebrated by their club ahead of and on day of the challenge.
London Youth Rowing and Andy Triggs-Hodge will support the nominee and their club, helping raise the profile and sponsorship potential for each Centurion.
The Centurion Challenge celebrates the transformative potential that the sport of rowing can have in serving its local communities by fundraising for a community project run by the Club
Throughout July and August we will be announcing the chosen challengers to take on the Centurion
The Centurion Challenge is not a race, it is a commitment to support your community by doing something extraordinary. The only winners are the people who benefit from the programmes we help fund.

Where has Centurion Challenge come from?
The Centurion Challenge is inspired by Lucy from Tees, who on the 12th June rowed 100km from Boston RC to Lincoln and back.
An epic feat in its own right as Lucy isn’t a professional athlete. Lucy used to be an overweight trucker when she was diagnosed with MS 15 years ago. She chose rowing as a vehicle to help aid her recovery, before long she was hooked and started taking on rowing marathons as a way something back to her local community.
With the help of Andy Triggs Hodge and London Youth Rowing, Lucy also raised money for the Boston Rowing Community Project to fund a rowing programme for the pupils of Haven High School, many of whom wouldn't have the opportunity to trying rowing. She inspired donations from local rowers and businesses alike to fund this exciting programme.
The Centurion Challenge has been created to give a platform to excellent people like Lucy and celebrate what she, and the many people like her do for rowing and the communities who participate.
Re-live the day Lucy rowed the 100km round trip from Boston Rowing Club to Lincoln...and back...on a sweltering hot June day!
