Rowing Canada Aviron, British Rowing, Rowing Australia and Rowing NZ have announced the One Minute Challenge, a joint initiative for indoor rowers across the respective nations.
Taking place over the weekend of May 7-11, the mass-participation competition challenges anyone with a rowing machine at home to see how far they can row in one minute. Members of the public will compete alongside rowers from each nation’s Olympic and Paralympic teams for individual awards in various age, weight and Para rowing categories, with international bragging rights also at stake for the country that records the furthest combined distance.
To keep track of the results, participants will be asked to log their scores on a live, real-time web platform, then share their results and nominate friends on social media using #minutechallenge.
The web platform will be open for entries throughout the weekend, opening at 4:00pmPDT/7:00pmEDT on Thursday May 7 and closing at 3:59pmPDT/6:59pmEDT on Monday May 11.
