2018 World Erg Challenge

Concept2 is once again holding their annual World Erg Challenge, running from March 15th until April 15th.  This 32-day event is a virtual team challenge, pitting team against team, club against club to see who can log the most meters during the challenge period.  The Winnipeg Rowing Club would like to invite all members to contribute their workout meters to this challenge by joining our team, and logging your workouts on the Concept2 Logbook.  On top of bragging rights, Concept2 has included a few other incentives and rewards to this challenge with individual prizes being awarded to the top 10 men & women, random prize draws for those who have reached at least 100,000m, as well as a grand prize for the club with the highest combined meters erged total, highest average meters erged per person (like an efficiency award), and two random draws.  For more information on the challenge, including a list of prizes being awarded, check out the official World Erg Challenge page on Concept2’s website:
