REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! – Please note that the 9am session is now FULLY BOOKED!
Macmillan Cancer Support (Jersey) is encouraging Islanders to make a New Year’s fitness resolution and ‘pull together’ at its annual indoor Rowathon. Macmillan Jersey’s Rowathon involves teams of six rowers rowing the equivalent distance from Jersey to Sark (30,000m) on an indoor rowing machine. Last year 49 teams took part, raising in excess of £34,000 for the charity.
This year’s Rowathon will take place on the 22nd April at Les Ormes. Teams can enter the 9am or 1pm sitting. Registrations can be made by completing either the adults or juniors form below. The event is once again being kindly supported by RBS International who have sponsored the event for the past seven years and their continued support is invaluable in maintaining our service. We are expanding the event and having a 16-18 years only category on Friday 21st April at 4pm. This year is also our 30th Anniversary as a charity in Jersey and we would love to get to full capacity of 60 teams for this year’s event and as many schools involved as possible.
Entry Fee: minimum £360 sponsorship commitment per team
Junior Entry: minimum £60 sponsorship commitment per team
Race Distance: 30,000m – equivalent of Sark to Jersey
Teams: 6 rowers to row 5 x 1,000m each – can be men, women or mixed
The minimum sponsorship amount is required to be paid in advance. All further monies can be paid after the event. Please note: Macmillan Jersey must be informed of all changes of rowers / teams. Any team that drops out after the closing date or does not show at the event will still be expected to meet their fundraising commitment to the charity.
