The Centurion Challenge is the brand new annual event from LYR!
Where: Rowing clubs across the country
When: 12th September, 2021
One person at each club will attempt to row 100km.
What does a 100km row mean? A training Olympian wouldn’t try this! It will take between 10 and 12 hours to complete, this is certainly not a jog in the park!
The Centurion Challenge is not a race, it is a commitment to support your community by doing something extraordinary. The real winners are the people who benefit from the programmes we help fund.
Lucy is no ordinary person: an ex-overweight trucker and diagnosed with MS 15 years ago. Rowing is her vehicle to help aid her recovery, before long she was hooked and started taking on rowing marathons – now she’s a stalwart for Tees RC.
The Centurion Challenge has been created to give a platform to the rowers like Lucy and celebrate what she, and the many people like her do for rowing and the communities who participate.
