Canary Wharf Rowathon
Note, this event has been cancelled due to the planned rail strikes
In association with St. James’s Place and proudly supported by Canary Wharf Group
Join us for the ultimate rowing challenge. To make the biggest difference for children. Described by Olympic rower Ian McNuff as “one of the best events outside of the British Championship.”
Whether a lung-busting team sprint or in the epic individual challenges, your sweat and endurance will make a life-changing difference to the most vulnerable children. You will be supporting Hope and Homes for Children’s vital work to ensure every child grows up with the love of a family, never in the neglect of an orphanage.
On the day there will be a commentator to spur you on, a live DJ who will be providing the ever-important hype track list, Olympic Rowers offering invaluable advice, and a spectator and bar area for you to invite friends and colleagues to cheer you on, it will be a truly electric atmosphere.
This is a challenge you can really put your back in to! Come and take on the indoor rowing event of the year.
“You have hit on something very special here. The most perfect venue for this event! It could be one of the best events outside of the British Championship” Olympic rower Ian McNuff
