The Rowlympic Challenge coincides with the Olympic Games regatta. To take part, you need to complete all seven events. You can do so on either the RowErg, SkiErg or BikeErg, or on-water, but you must complete all the events on the same type of machine. You can do the events in any order as long as you finish by the end of July 30, 2021.

Upcoming Challenges

Dog Days Challenge

August 1–28

The Dog Days of Summer are almost upon us! What better time for a challenge?

Complete the Dog Days of Summer challenge by finishing each of the following four distance goals in the timeframes indicated and log them in your online logbook:

  • Week 1, Aug. 1–7: 10,000 meters
  • Week 2, Aug. 8–14: 20,000 meters
  • Week 3, Aug. 15–21: 30,000 meters
  • Week 4, Aug. 22–28: 40,000 meters

Distances are cumulative (you don't have to complete 10,000 meters in one sitting, for instance), and all meters—rowing or skiing, indoors or out—count. Plus, this year, we've added an optional level for kids and adaptive athletes. We hope you'll join us!
