We’re very excited to announce our Row to Paris—#CatchMeIfYouCan challenge!

Over the next 5 weeks schools can track kilometers from any form of exercise—running, walking, biking, rowing, erging, etc.—and log them daily to our website. 

How far do students need to go? We’re going to pair participating schools with one of Ireland’s high-performance rowers. While these women and men train to represent our country in the Olympics, they’re going to take time out to make videos and send them to students. They’ll talk about their training regimen and issue a weekly challenge at the end of each video. Schools will receive points for tracking as closely as they can to their athlete’s training plan. The school with the most points in 5 weeks wins a brand new Concept 2 Rowing Machine from our Rowing Ireland Sponsor https://rowfit.ie/.

Schools can go to https://www.getgoinggetrowing.com/row-to-paris-catch-us-if-you-can/ and enter their name and details about their daily kilometers in exercise.

It’s time to start getting excited about the Paris Olympics this summer! What better way than to introduce Ireland’s school students to our Olympic Rowing team who are aiming to make sport history!
