CRUK & British Rowing partnership launches with indoor rowing festival

CRUK & British Rowing partnership launches with indoor rowing festival

and British Rowing have announced a new partnership, launching next month with a festival of indoor rowing.

The partnership kicks off at the British Rowing Indoor Championships on 10th December at the Lee Valley VeloPark, and will centre around this event and Cancer Research UK’s The Great Row, an indoor rowing challenge that launches in January next year and culminates with The Cancer Research UK Boat Races on 2nd April.

The British Rowing Indoor Championships are open to anyone who wants to race on an indoor rowing machine over 500m, 2,000m or as part of a relay team. The Cancer Research UK team will be at the event to meet competitors and spectators alongside the athletes from Great Britain’s national team.

The Great Row is open to anyone who wants to start their year with a challenge on the indoor rowing machine, and both events will raise money for the charity’s cancer research.

Kenny Baillie, director of partnerships and communications at British Rowing said:

“This year’s British Rowing Indoor Championships will be a great event to launch our new partnership and generate momentum into the new year for The Great Row. Indoor rowing is the perfect workout for people of all ages and backgrounds and these two events offer the opportunity for anyone to get involved with the , from complete beginner to seasoned pro.”
