Rowing Race for Runners

The annual rowing race for runners will be taking place on January 15th in Teddington.  It is hosted by the Teddington Skiff club who will also assist with offering a couple of training sessions in the skiff’s, as well as provide the cox on the day.  There are three categories mens, ladies and mixed with 2 rowers and 1 cox per boat.  The race takes place on the river, no it’s not held in a warm gym on rowing machines, and is what I would consider a sprint as it’s over in approximately 3 minutes. 

Last year we entered 2 ladies teams and managed to achieve 1st and 2nd, and everybody who took part as well as those who came to spectate had a great time.  If anybody is interested please let me (Kate Hancock) know, I believe we have 1 or 2 ladies teams but it would be great if we could also enter one or both of the mens or mixed categories.
