Goal £ 1,000.00
2.5% towards our goal

Originally I signed up to the Concept2 Million Metre Challenge in September 2011. My aim was to complete one million metres on the ergo before the Veterans Head on 18th March 2012 followed by the British Indoor Rowing Championships in Nottingham on 25th March. I successfully achieved this on 14th February and managed a respectable 6:38.2 at BIRC. I also reached my target of raising £1,000. My targets for my second season were: ONE Million water meters 1st May 2012 - 30th April 2013 TWO Million more erg meters or suitably Olympian 2012Km 15th Feb 2012 - 30th April 2013 = THREE Million erg meters total 5th Sept 2011 - 30th April 2013 = FOUR Million total water + erg meters These were also completed successfully. After that the rot set in a little. My third season targets were another million meters on the erg plus another million on the water. As of the End of april 2014 I had fallen a little short and I continue to plod on with the aim of reaching a total of 6 million meters by the time the new boathouse opens in October 2014. Of course it is in aid of the Marlow Rowing Club Fire and Building fund. Having been a member since 1984, Marlow Rowing Club is an institution close to my heart, not least because I met my wife there.
