25th April 2016
Yesterday we hosted our very first event – Row A Marathon On London Marathon Day by Monkey Nuts Adventure.
The day was a roaring success with 36 participants attending – 5 teams and 16 solo rowers taking on the 42,195m challenge with an additional 6 people doing it remotely.
Our event took place at Crossfit Panic in Melton Mowbray, where we were joined by a bunch of extremely determined people. Some of which included a female British powerlifting champion, a female 3 times British indoor rowing record holder, male indoor rowing marathon World record holder, Crossfit enthusiasts, a world class breed of obstacle racers, families, friends and Megan, Genevieve and Bronte, aged 11, 11 and 10.
It was an incredible mix of people, ages, backgrounds and sports and everyone pulled together to support one another.
We are so fortunate to have a fantastic support network of sponsors that helped our day go smoothly, with hydration, supplements, food and morale boosts.
