World Erg Challenge
March 15–April 15
Join a team (or create your own) to participate in the World Erg Challenge! Each team rows, skis or rides as many meters as they can collectively between March 15 and April 15. Note: This is a team challenge. You must belong to a team to participate. This is not the same as your club affiliation in your profile.
Full instructions can be found on the World Erg Challenge page.
To join or create a team, visit the Teams page.
Note: Certificates and other challenge incentives will be available on the Teams page after March 30 23:59 GMT (19:59 ET).
April Fools' Challenge
Our special April Fools' Challenge is a streak challenge with a difference. To take part, you need to row, ski or ride every day for 15 days from April 1. Each day, however, the distance you need to do rises. On April 1 you need to do at least 1000m. On April 2, you need to do at least 2000m, all the way up to 15,000m on April 15.
You don't have to do the entire distance in one workout, and you can combine meters from different machines. BikeErg meters count for half, however, so you'll need to do at least 2,000m on the BikeErg on April 1.
Mud Season Madness
Row, ski or ride 5000 meters a day for 25 days in March to meet the basic Mud Season Challenge! Kick it up a notch and row, ski or ride 10,000 meters or more for 25 days in March to meet the advanced Mud Season Madness Challenge.
Global Marathon and Century Challenge
- Choose from two levels of participation:
- Full Marathon/Century Challenge: Row or ski a full marathon (exactly 42,195 meters) or ride/row/ski 100,000m in one workout during the first two weeks of May and enter it in your online logbook.
- Half Marathon/Half Century Challenge: Row or ski a half marathon (exactly 21,097 meters) or ride/row/ski 50,000m in one workout during the first two weeks of May and enter it in your online logbook.
- Meter amounts must exactly match the distances (42,195 and 21,097, respectively, for the full and half marathon, or 100,000m or 50,000m for the Century/Half Century) to be counted for the challenge.
- Indoor rower, SkiErg or BikeErg meters only (no on water/on snow meters please). Meters must be done all at once in one workout; you cannot combine meters from each machine to reach the half or full marathon total.
- This is an individual challenge. (You do not need to belong to a team to participate.)
- Meters must be entered online.
