The Big Row is the new annual fundraiser for Love Rowing, helping support sharing the incredible benefits of rowing to wider and more diverse groups around the UK. As one giant rowing crew, we’re going to be trying to row from London to Tokyo and then back to Paris during the week of 28 June to 4 July – a whopping 19,271 km in total – celebrating the postponed Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Getting involved is simple – you can choose your own challenge. It could be time or distance based, individual or with your crew/ club mates, over one day or a full week, on water or indoor. If you’re feeling brave you could even target a record attempt! You can take part at home, online, in school or at your club or gym.

Whatever you decide for your challenge, you can then raise funds through sponsorship using your personalised fundraising page and help more people experience the benefits of rowing.
