The #RecruitmentRowathon – The best bits!

A lot of blisters and aching knees later our seven teams smashed the #RecruitmentRowathon. What a day! We rowed a combined 609,892m that’s unbelievable! Thanks to all the teams that took part! Read our Best-Bits blog recapping the day & the leaderboard!”Who’s bloody idea was this” , “Blimey! That was absolutely awful!!” , “Burn out from the Juniors” – Some of the quotes from our brave rowers at todays #RecruitmentRowathon, 7 teams took on the challenge of an 8hour endurance race for charity, yep you heard that right 8 hours of continuous rowing! We were raising for the amazing charities OPERA Global Youth Foundation, Clic Sargeant and The Shepway Sports Trust.


We all ended up with a lot of blisters on our hands, sweaty brows and wobbly knees but we did it! Rowing a combined 609,892 , absolutely amazing!

And extra kudos to the guys at TXMRecruit who did an Ironman as well as the Rowathon! Going the extra mile.
