Rowing NZ announces four nation indoor rowing challenge

Rowing Canada Aviron, British Rowing, Rowing Australia and Rowing NZ have today announced the One Minute Challenge, a joint initiative for indoor rowers across the respective nations.

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. Taking place over the weekend of Friday 8 – Tuesday 12 May, 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 elite teams for individual awards in various age, weight and adaptive rowing categories, with international bragging rights also at stake for the country that records the furthest combined distance.

The web platform will be open for entries throughout this coming weekend, opening at 11:00 Friday 8 May and closing at 10.59 Tuesday 12 May.
